"it's not a big deal."
I'd say that a lot
I know you never believed me
But the lie kept falling out of my mouth like earth tumbling off the side of a mountain, my words are a landslide.
they leave destruction in their wake.
I told you, through bleeding lips and a bruised jaw that wouldn't close just the way it should,
"It's not a big deal."
Shrug it off, boy, no one cares.
you can peel off your skin and leave burns in places you can say it was an accident and no one bats an eye
it's almost too easy
"Cooking accident" "Just a scrape"
the lies weave their way around my broken teeth like ghosts navigating a graveyard
no one questions them
you can't see blood on a black t-shirt
my hands are covered in bandaids and shaking like a terrified dog, we're all just terrified
terrified of ourselves
But it's not a big deal
