She looks me in the eye
not a single spark of life
and says those words
causing my heart to ache.
You cannot tell me how to dream.
You cannot tell me how to love.
You cannot tell me its my fault.
I am one person,
not something that takes care of it all.
You cannot tell me he left us.
He left you.
Her screams erupt
causing my body to shake.
Then she comes closer
but what is she given?
A fearful girl
cowering in the corner.
You cannot tell me I am worthless.
I wasn't born for your happiness.
