Autonomy

March 13th, 2020

You twist my arm
Like I’m a plastic toy
I said I’m not a Doll
But it’s pain that you enjoy
You turn me around
Like my path is easily altered
But I can make my own choices
Even if you think I’ll falter
You throw your words
Like a knife into my back
You want me to need you
But love doesn’t work like that

Save Me

March 4th, 2020

I’m searching for the words
That can save a life
A moment of pure empathy
When things aren’t feeling right

No one can relate
No one feels this way
Empathetic to myself
Is not enough to stay
