Oceans Between Me and You

Lately, I feel like the little girl in this music video – that I have to put on a cape and mask just to face the world and my increasingly isolated place within it. Of course, that’s not a healthy or sustainable way to live, but I try all the same. Perhaps I try because I prefer the dull ache of wearing my cloak to the sting of vulnerability that comes with allowing the whole world to see my wounds. I doubt that I am alone in this, so maybe simply sharing the feeling will be helpful even if I can’t expose the words written on my back  for fear that they are true.
