I never gave you any space
Uninvited you've settled in.
Droning on, your nagging voice,
Taking over like a kingpin.
It's crowded up there, where you stay.
Thoughts of bills and pets, and raising my son.
But you bring more and squeeze them in,
Self-harm, starvation, and coming undone.
So overpowering you've become,
Even though I've lived with you for years.
I feel myself caving in more than not,
And walking hand in hand with who holds my fears.
Skipping meals and using blades,
Daydreaming of a world without me.
Maybe I'm keeping you here,
That just couldn't be...
