This constant anger leaves me drained
Drained
I can never
Let it go, never, you won't let me, won't
Leave me to my
Struggles, to
Find my
Peace, gradually, it's always been
"If you cry you'll be punished"
"If you pull that face you'll be grounded"
And if I need to breathe, tell me, what then?
And If I need to sing, tell me, what now?
What now?
You never
Understand how it feels
This isn't frustration, it isn't bitterness, it's
Sadness, sadness – sadness at
The contempt I feel for you at times
Sadness at
The anger I must keep at bay.
It's not always there, no, but
When it is
I can never, never let it go – you
Won't let me, will you?
But tell me:
If I need to breathe, just
Breathe, what then?
And If I need to sing, tell me, what next?
What next?
What next?
This constant anger leaves me drained
Drained
Drained.

Love the questions... they seem sarcastic but honest at the same time.
