Cognitive Dissonance

It's ok, no one is perfect
These venomous words are just
your father's empty whisky bottle

It's ok, we belong together
The lasso around my neck is just
your mother's coddle

You are the kindest in the world
So full of compassion
These bruises are only proof
that your soul is full of passion

Three days & not a word
I know it's not for the lack of devotion
I mustn't reveal my frivolous heart
This burning desire is a foolish notion


Cognitive dissonance is a state of mental conflict that occurs when your beliefs don't line up with your actions. It's an uncomfortable state of mind when someone has contradictory values, attitudes, or perspectives about the same thing. A person often forms faulty inner narratives to ease this discomfort & often falls back into a heightened state of stress when this narrative is challenged.
