Mute.

i'm talking to myself using subordinate clauses,
you walk in and my voice pauses,
you're making hate spread among the surface of you and me,
stab me in the back and watch me bleed,

i put on that fake smile just for you,
you treat like i'm stupid - like i'm new,
you're just degrading yourself,
and leaving me gathering dust on the shelf,

you're the queen of ruining so many people,
o, how i wish your lips were stapled,
you're the one always focusing on others flaws
i mentally say 'go ---- yourself' and i withdraw,

you treat me like nothing but a light switch,
and i just sit here mute while you make the electricity twitch,
if i ever needed help from you,
you'd leave me there to cry and yelp,

you're nothing but a hopeless soul,
i walk in your way and you give me a toll,
stop trying to reveal my nasty side,
that's the reason i keep my secrets in a cave that you can't find.
