You say that I’ve changed, I’m simply not the same. A stranger that stole Your little sisters face. What a disgrace, To be so misplaced. But tell me dear siblings, How would you know? You never see me. I have bent over backwards All for you. My “loving” family, I have broken my heart Again and again On the cold steel of your eyes. I have choked on the storm Of your torrent of lies. I have cut myself open And poured my blood all over the razor whip of your cruel words. I have cried for you I have died inside for you And when you were jealous, because I could fly I let you tear off my wings And chain me to the ground. Because I was told your love Had to be earned I did everything you asked of me. I gave you my everything And then a little more Only to hear you demand for more. Your eyes stayed cold And words cut deeper still I froze from your gaze And collapsed from the blood loss And you were insulted And as you broke me You laughed when you snapped me in two Then left me behind, As you always do. You expect me to take the pain And rise once more On trembling limbs To trail on after you So you can break me some more. You demand I be there should you have the need To always be willing to let you watch me bleed. And yet you claim that It is I, Who has changed, That I am simply not the same. A stranger that stole Your little sisters face. And as I lay bleeding I realized you were leeching The life from my soul And I felt the betrayal swallow me whole I gasp for air, Running out of breath From the noose of expectations You’ve tied round my neck.
