    How can you fail to understand me so completely?
    Where did I come from?
    I’m not the first to wonder this
    I won’t be the last.
    But you make me die a little bit inside
    Like a little kid
    I want to run away.
    This place that was supposed to be safe
    isn’t safe anymore.
    And I’m starting to realize
    it never was.
    My body remembers what it would not
    and forgets what it should not
    and my tongue lies.
    Don’t forgive me.
    I don’t want it.
    I didn’t do anything to require it.
    So don’t give me this shit.
    Don’t hand me guilt like a gift
    and expect me to smile
    and thank you.
