Next to you planning trips together

Driving license, to run away for the weekend 

Endless lists of places, we had decades to explore

Till then, you waited patiently for me to be yours 

 

You didn’t wait at all to start pressuring

Growing 20 without experiencing

I’m not paid to be at beck and call 

 

We wanted to see it through

Young and careless 

Old and breathless 

 

Months went by till planning proposals

The magical stories I didn’t want as my happy ending 

The jobs, the house seeming frighteningly close just then

Always two steps ahead, my life planned to the grave 

 

Shoved me through and I didn’t say no 

My soul was injected with a poison 

Every single word from my mouth was empty 

 

The bar was low 

The list of songs about me grew 

Discussions went on for days, sleep-deprived 

 

Days dragged on, thankfully mine didn’t turn 18 

The strength to end and kill was the easiest 

To make you pay, to make you hurt meant everything 

This train wreck has left scars 

Fe – man
