Why do we keep hurting each other?
How much longer can I live your dream
before losing mine completely?
What more can I do to please you
before forgetting what pleases me?
How farther away can I go
for us to be closer to one another?
When will you be able to listen to me
without letting your voice take over your head?
No matter what I do what I say how much I try where I am
you cannot let go of my life
I cannot let go of the life you force upon me.
You have a way to make me feel
like I always felt, when I wanted
more than once
The only place where that is possible
is somewhere else but this Earth.
From time to time
I feel like I am just a kid
by your expectations.
You cannot stop worrying about me.
I cannot stop worrying about you worrying about me.
I am tired of trying to maintain the fake peace around us,
of not being able to tell you how tired I have got
How do I gather the courage
to stop thinking too much,
which does not help at all,
to simply let go
what matters if I leave?
