Tear Me Down

Why do you tear me down?
There’s suppose to be so much love between us,
That’s how it goes,
It’s what they all say,
Sisters, Mothers, Friends,
The ties all overflow with love,
That’s what everyone says,
And what everyone sees.

It hurts,
The way you talk to me,
And the way you talk about me.
When you say I’m not good enough,
When you say I’m a bad friend,
When you say I should be more like everyone else,
More like anybody else,
Anybody other than me.

When I’m alone,
I let it get to me,
I unleash the hidden tears,
I let your words cut me open,
I bleed out the pain,
And I wish,
Just as you do,
That I could be more like everybody else.

I walk around,
A shell of a person,
Everyone sees the love that should be there,
But they’re imagining.
They overlook the hurt,
They way you despise who I am,
When I don’t even know who I am yet.

Why do you tear me down,
Why must you say the things you do?
Don’t you know how my heart already bleeds,
And how it bleeds because of you?
