he convinced me I could never be loved….

and it killed me to live a life only he dreamed of….

you can have the whole world love you…

and it won’t mean a thing…

because if you can’t love the person in the mirror….

you’re a caged  bird, fear stealing your voice to sing…

and I just want to love me….

but it’s hard to love someone who they left….

losing my own life to an invisible kind of theft….

and I just want you to love me…

but all this time….

I was screaming….

Why can’t I love me?
