Change me

by sschubert

Copyright ©2011 Stephanie R Schubert

The trust has been breeched
The color has faded
From my cheeks
I stand defeated

The tears well in my eyes
As I know you
Will dwell on the past
Running through all the reasons
We couldn’t last

It’s all to much
I am overwhelmed
The way you want to dominate
How you believe
You communicate

You wanting to change who I am
What I was
Where I have been

When all the while
You disguise
All the opinions
you try to hide

You think I am your answer
To loneliness
But I now know
You’re just like the rest

To afraid to hold me tight
Too afraid to compromise
Instead in conflict we shall dwell
Until I find the strength
To wish us both farewell

Until then
I roll my eyes
Silently you
I despise

has a name
It’s you and me
Ending the same.
