You Could Never
You could never see how my love for you hurt.
I blinded myself from your selfish ways and you took advantage me.
You could never hear the lies I told myself to be "happy".
Whispering voices in my head saying "you don't want to see her sad".
You could never feel the cold touch to my skin.
I didn't want to leave my dark place.
Only because letting someone bring light inside was too risky.
Eventually you'd convince me they would eventually leave to.
You could never taste the blood.
Biting my tongue in fear of being shamed and hated by you.
you words cut like a razor blade that not even stitches could heal.
You could never smell the despair evaporating off of my body.
Thinking that depression is all there is to look forward to.
My body reeked of sorrow, misery and unhappiness.
Mom, you could never understand.
Whether you like it or not you're now a part of my past.
so until you change, that is where you will stay.
