For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: "it might have been."

i am broken,
But not how you would think.
i am broken,
But i have no missing link.
i am broken,
It is not a broken heart.
i was born broken,
i've been broken from the start.

i am crooked,
But it is not in the mind.
i am crooked,
It is not hard to find.
i am crooked,
In the most important place of all.
My spine is crooked,
Hide with me, behind my wall.

i am hiding,
Why does everyone have to stare?
i am hiding,
i have never been so scared.

i am scared,
Please be with me every step.
i am scared,
That this isn't over yet.

Hello, my name does not matter.
i am broken,
i am crooked,
i am hiding,
i am scared,
So behind my wall
i will crawl.

Close your eyes,
i'm pretty if you don't look.
Tall me sweet lies,
Tell me stories from your book.
You can make it go away,
With just one little kiss.
i swear, i can do this.

Please just take my hand.
And maybe one day, i'll be like you,
i won't be crooked when i stand.
