I should have told you to go to hell a long long time ago
When you first exaggerated how much we owed
Dance around subject because I dislike confrontation
Could've been straightforward and skipped speculation
Instead we are just covering up resentment with a mask
Of words we don't care enough to ask
There will never be a convenient time or place
Never get to express annoyance to your face
When fate gives the trauma you deserve
You'll need to eat the plate of pain served
But we left room faster than expected
You were trying
Flaws numerous and neglected
I would look for a way to change if I were you
If you're up to it
A lengthy list to review
I will squint and quiet the thoughts in my head
The best proof that some words should be said
About my mother
