You + Me

By    

It must be nice to wander into the abyss
While I am left here awake
Surrounded by darkness
Surrounded by the words you gave me.

It must be nice to forget the slaps
And name-calling
And aggression
While I carry the scars
While I silently shed the tears

It must be nice to walk away
Without care, without apology
While I lie here wrestling with self-doubt
While I lie here wrestling with forgiveness

It must be nice to be you.
Without fear, without explanation.
While I am me,
While I am here,
And here is broken.
