i used to think the answer for everything 
was the way your smile angled ever so slightly to the left 
but then the crook in it made me realize the lie behind it
you are not what you present yourself as being.
you are not a sunrise i woke up early to see or a wave that hit just fucking right, no no you are the murderer who gets a not guilty verdict and then boasts about it you are the one who breaks it all just because you can
i have sat here for years, fucking years waiting for something better every fucking time it feels that way i get that nagging voice, right? we all know the little whispers in our ears, the same fucking story everyone goddamn tells and tries to pass it off in a new box to make it seem like it is something new to behold
it isn't
you'll think me as the villain no matter what and i will know the answers without ever asking you because if i dig, then i dig and you become buried in your lies but if i dig, you turn on me and tell me i am a cunt so i become the liar as well, letting you believe i know nothing but even as my arms get tired and my mind struggles to reach every memory, i know the little notes my conscious left me
do you?
do you ever think about choices and how they impact every little thing around you?
your father died your mother is a cunt and you found love in women who were co-dependent liars i don't need a psych degree to see that one you care for nothing about me and i put everything in to you so erase my memory of you, i would gladly and while i will be left alone, you will be left with choices that lead you nowhere and some day it will all come down and end


Author's Note: i want to hate you but i never can

wonderful writing and fearless to speak its rightful mind.

There's a lot of really wonderful imagery here, in a place that feels like a straight-jacket.
