I ask you for your time but you deny me, I ask you for your love but you despise me, I reached out my hand but you pushed it away.
You said save it for a rainy day, but my tears are pouring down on me, why isn't that enough to make you care?
I try so hard to make you happy but you point out all my mistakes, everything I did that you didn't like. I ask you for help, you tell me to grow up, "help won't always be there."
No, you're right, help will never be there because neither are you! You'll always be the shadow to try and keep me from the light, you'll always be the anchor pulling me under the waves.
I strive for perfection so you'll see me for more than a mistake, but I will never be more than that in your eyes.
All you see is a girl who can't stand on her own, a girl full of mistakes and flaws when all you want is perfect, a girl you'll never love.
But I am more than a mistake, my flaws make me beautiful, and I don't need you to keep me on my own two feet, I don't need you to tell me something I know you'll never say.
I have found the beauty from my pain, the healing in my suffering, I have found a love so deep in my heart that you could never break it.
I have found a replacement for you! A love that can mend the wounds you've embedded in my skin, a love that you'll never come close to. I may not be perfect, but neither are you.
And this love has healed my broken wings so that I may soar over you and live the life I deserve. The life you never gave me.
