Never Enough

Have you noticed I haven't showered in three days? Every hour, every minute passes in a haze. Have you noticed that my clothes are still the same? I smell terrible, but I can't be ed to change. Have you noticed that I'm quiet most of the time? Only when I'm around you, do I smile. Do you notice that I serve you in all of my minutes? Do you notice my annoyance when you push all my limits? Do you hear your own words when you're talking to me? You always speak as if I can't hear, as if I can't feel, as if I can't see. I hate the person I'm becoming, one who's not so loving. It's not easy to heal. Especially when my wounds Seem to be all about you And about everything that you feel In my mind I have this image Of you that's not realistic And it's hard to lose you again I'm struggling to survive now I don't really know how When I cling to every word that you say You stab yourself with your knives Then blame it all on our lives But I'm the one who has to hear I wish that I could speak out But my voice is taken from me now Keep quiet because you are near I can never please you No matter what it is that I do You'll always find a way to be mad Now I'm just surviving While thinking of dying Then maybe you'll finally be glad
