How I Feel

I look into your eyes

I see resentment

I listen to your voice

I hear disappointment

I want your love and affection

But all I do is wreck expectation

Can you see my sadness?

Can you hear my voice getting small?

Sometimes when I'm around you, I don't recognize myself at all

I'm sorry I'm not what you imagined, but I can't change myself

I like myself too much to do so

Please, no more hits to my character and my faults

My personality can't handle another blow

My love for myself is enough

For you and for me
