Sometimes I sit and wonder why
no matter what I do
I'll be the thing I most despise
I'll end up just like you
My father was always the perfect example of what NOT to do when I was growing  up.

I agree and nod my head
I didn't hear a word you said
I'm tuned into the grinding gears
that cause that ringing in my ears

I feel like maybe something in there is about to break, if it hasn't already

my eyes feel like
they're gonna bleed
and I can't get
enough to eat

things have been a bit fuzzy

same thing every morning
I make coffee, clean up dog messes
feed critters, check traps
then maybe breakfast

I always serve others before I take out the time to serve myself, yet a lot of folks seem to like to call me selfish

I tried to stay impersonal
but when I got inside
it was just too late for me
the feelings won't subside

I try to move on but I can't get you out of my head

Sometimes I sit and wonder why
I always feel like ****
but when the box says 4 teaspoons
I have to double it

more butter, more better

this battle has been won and I
appear to be just fine
but that's because you wouldn't care
to read between the lines


People always notice my glow, but in that light there is darkness
