When I am alone everything changes.
Some might call it a distorted reality.
But it's exactly the place where I need to be.
There's only one person inside me.
I've grown to like her better than me.
There's no perfect daughter.
There's no perfect girlfriend.
There's no perfect best friend.
There's no perfect high-school junior.
There's no perfect girl.
There's only me.
What Hurts the MostWhat hurts the most is that I couldn't say goodbye,What Hurts the Most5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
what hits the hardest is that you couldn't stop the lie,
you just wouldn't.
What causes me the most pain is that your chains
around my neck wouldn't break away, even after,
you let go.
What hurts the most is that you fought me on everything
but you wouldn't fight for me.
You would selfishly push me away
then beg for me to stay.
What hurts the most is that you didn't want me as a lover,
you needed me as a mother, and I was nothing to you
but somebody to care for you,
and I was that lucky one, you HAD to love,
for I grew up quickly, I had to,
for you needed me, as a mother,
and I couldn't leave you.
