The Reason

You are the reason

Why I want to chance.

I want to be nothing

Like you.

I want to be so much

Better than you.

You are the reason

Why this knife

Leaves constant reminders

Of my past.

You are the reason

Why I long for love.

You are the reason

Why I have to leave

Why I feel hopeless

Why I feel alone

And scared, and angry.

You are the reason

Why I never

Want to be

Anything

Like

You.
