"And the day came, where the risk to remain tight in a bud, was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." ~Anais Nin~

In every sense of the word
Bite your tongue and let it ride
Push it out, what you feel inside
You're so transparent, Cannot hide
And I don't let you know
That I see through your facade
There are cracks in the glass
Where your short-comings leak
And you dare make me feel like I'm weak
Who are you to stand there and critique?
What is your reason?

Carbon copy
And yes, I know
You feed off of me to flourish
But you're stealing the sunlight,
Impeding my rain
Don't make me suffer for what you cannot say
Your world is plastic, everything feign
I'm tired of you calling my name
Just to coax me near
So you can
Drag me down

Aren't you tired of the lies?
Would you even recognize yourself if you looked
Deep inside?

I'm tired of taking the hits
All black and blue, fighting your battles
And I don't know why

All I want is love, but you only know how to fight
And I am up too far to jump from this height
Why is everything so

Right or wrong
It all seems so obscure to me
And none of the pieces seem to fit

I get punished, take your violent hits
I'm the one who goes through this s***
And you,
Would never even ponder the thought of
It's all in your eyes
The complete disregard you constantly omit.

Right down to the marrow of your bone
I can't look you in the eye
I've tried
I've cried
At the end of the day I let it slide
Because that hope for us tomorrow
But not now
My feelings are far beyond skin deep
I'm so exhausted from the havoc you wreak
Lying awake in the dark while you're sound asleep
Find someone else who's willing to leap
To try and change you,
It won't happen.

I'll tell you one thing before I leave you on your own
The world is a cold lonely place
When you
