She doesn’t call out to be selfish…

She doesn’t bleed for attention…

She doesn’t cry because she’s weak…

Your love, it doesn’t feel real to me.

No matter how I try to let it go, the memories remind me of the times where I was afraid.

I tried to find a place safe from you.

But you found me anyways.

I’m no longer a child, but the child in me remembers.

She remembers you in a different light.

She still tries to escape at night.

But you…

You don’t remember…

It was so long ago for you.

But for me…

Those moments stay alive in memory.
