I itch, I scratch
I scratch, I itch
My skin peels then bleeds
Healing potions are at the top of my needs
I see you staring
Is that a look of disgust? A look of disgrace?
Stop scratching and tearing.
Hahaha! I wasn't blessed with that grace.
But then there are those others who tell me to get over it.
I’ve tried that and it just got worse itch by itch.
I itch, I scratch,
I scratch, I bleed.
Can you see what I see?
I see you staring.
I hear the words that you’re thinking
You’re thinking I’m infected
Your thinking that there has been a problem detected
You see the grossness, uncontrolled
I have no control when I scratch
I can’t help it
I itch, I scratch
I scratch, I itch
Is it too much to ask for this to end?
I don’t want to itch
I don’t want to scratch
I don’t want you seeing
I don’t want you knowing
I want to be the pretty girl with her hair blowing
Words flowing
Skin glowing
I want it to go
I itch, I scratch
I scratch, I itch
The cycle never ends
