You say it's wretched
You say it's grotesque
You say it's unbearable
But I know you life is nothing,
Nothing like that

You say you'll endure it
That it's a scar you'll live with
You say I know nothing
But I can read in between the lines.

You say you've been abused
But you lie in vain
The trust I gave you slaps me in the face
I know your life is nothing,
Nothing like that

You say I don't understand
But that's the problem

I do

wow, this is really effective, can completely empathise, however i don't think that we can judge what other people's lives are really like. appearances can be very deceiving. I know I don't know the exact situation you're talking about but sometimes - even if they're lying, it's because somethings wrong and they still need help. anywyas...really great write. I like the language choice a lot.
