Feeling feelings I can't find,
Seeing your face, I just can't hide
You come in, your ugly face before me
You spit in my face and then you ignore me

I tried... to be a good boy
You slap me, abuse me, use me like a toy
A hate deep inside, painful thoughts of you
I cry and I cry but it just won't leave me alone...


Now, these memories, they all make me die
So... your insults, at my face they fly...


Raping, taking, hating, breaking
Eating, cheating, feeding, beating
Sucking, f*cking, hating everything...


I walk in, and I say hello
You make some comment on my clothes, self esteem so low
I smile in disgust
I can't stand your lust for hurting me...

( Pre)
( Chorus )


I keep trying, hope keeps dying
No point in trying, you keep hating
So I cry, as you pry
At the pressures in my head
Where were you, when I was hurting
Look at me dad, your son is breaking...
Look at this bloody child, sprawled up in the corner...

There's no point in trying anymore
Hit me until it doesn't hurt you anymore

So yeah, I guess I wrote this song about my stepmom. Personally, I don't think it's that good. For some reason, it's hard for me to write about stuff like that, and I also comes with a package of many mixed emotions. So idk.

Hi T&T. For something like this, poetry is the best outlet. I felt the anger and pain, but you will have a broader canvas if you restructure this as a poem.

If you've read my stuff, you'll know what I mean. Rainbows and puppy dogs burn and wither if they try to enter my word-scape.

In reality I don't think this way, but with poetry? Anything goes.

I meant to say (this is upon edit) that I liked the power in your words.
