I

I - Jina Wallwork

Give me your eyes. I want to see life from your perspective, because I wish to understand you more completely. I want to feel your desires and assist you in your search for happiness. I want to know how you see the world. Tell me everything, and I will walk through the landscape of your mind and discover your reality. I want to hear your problems and search for solutions. I want to be a part of your inner world; I want to be a part of you.

I have your eyes. I know what you feel and everything you desire. I am lost within your inner world, isolated from my own perspective. My needs have been replaced by your own. I asked you to share your world, but you didn't make the same request. My world is camouflaged with silence. Between us there is not a true connection, because I have not retained all the pieces of my personality. I desire the space to be myself. This isn't something I should have to sacrifice.
