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

The Secret Life of Dolls

January 15th, 2019

Let’s go back
To a story that never started
Where a porcelain toy
Wasn’t left broken hearted
Let’s go back
To memories that don’t exist
Because the bruises never formed
At the hands of angry fists
Let’s go back
To when you didn’t drink the bottle
It fell empty on its own
And you’re still a perfect role model
Let’s go back
To when you didn’t let me down
You must have told me you were moving
Before you left town
Let’s go back
To when our family was defined
And I will delete what never happened
From the archives of my mind

Dry On My Skin

January 28th, 2008

You push me away
Then you pull me back in
I can’t get you out of my head
When you’re under my skin
This game that you’re playing
Is so unfair
But as long as you’re happy
I don’t care
Though you’re moving on
And I hold my feelings in
The tears form in my eyes
Then they dry on my skin
You put me back together
Just to rip me apart
And you know what you’re doing
You’re toying with my heart
And why you’re doing this
I only wish I knew
Because I know that you know
All I want is you
