How do I get it so wrong

No matter what I do

Why do the voices

Keep telling me I’ll hurt you

Maybe I just need to comply

Duct tape my mouth shut

And tie my hands behind my back

Throw away everything 

To keep things kosher 

All the stress 

Will be over 


Piece By Piece

If there’s no respect

Then what’s left?

Why should one side

Only be the one to admit

Wrongs are capable

Of coming from both sides

But who cares right?

Why let go of pride?

All the punches will be taken

Watch as this heart

Is slowly broken
