How much longer will you cast me aside
Late at night, I thought of you and cried
Wondering shall it be better if I died
For I only feel the hurt you provide
Hold me, someone, for I am weak
I am too hurt to move, too tired to speak
A person to understand is who I seek
Someone to care for me as though I am unique
For you, I want to be perfect
Desiring to earn your respect
But am I the one you will always reject?
What exactly am I to expect?
