just as sure as I am,

that you do not see me,

I am sure that you do not see yourself—-

nor the effect you have on me,

even as you mean to say nothing.

just as sure as I am,

that you do not know me,

I am sure that you do not want to know me,

or the way I've come to be,

or the war within me,

that you have caused to twist and turn and—-

just as sure as I am

that I am not worthy of your love,

I am sure that love is all I've ever asked of you

and that you deny me only this,

while you bestow your love like tokens

you have too much of,

upon the ones who followed after me.

just as I am sure….

I am sure of nothing
