never appreciated,

always run ragged,

i don't understand why i get stepped over,

every day is the same,

/0/

complaining about how i'm never good enough,

always not measuring up,

your standards are too high,

nothing equates to you,

/0/

i'm supposed to not care,

but every day,

you rip more strings out of my heart again,

your fist around them,

/0/

i can't take it,

i can't take it,

my lungs want to die,

and my insides are blackened by your touch,

/0/

buried one step each day,

and the shovel just waits for me when i wake,

the dirt is suffocating,

is there any light?

/0/

always taken for granted,

i'm always there for you,

but i never satisfy you,

what can i do to change?

/0/

arguments are never fought back,

and i just take the punches,

i just take the punches,

can you see the way i bleed?

/0/

it's running through my porcelain fingertips,

my sanity is like grains of sand,

i can't hold on any longer,

can you just please pick me up?

/0/

i need someone to lift me up from the depths,

bring me life into this useless body,

and make this ache go away,

brush the earth away,

/0/

i will be covered up until the die that my heart stops,

there is no one that cares,

no one that longs,

but somebody save me.
