Pretenses (a poem I wrote)

Fist a hole through her face
She tried to be everything she wasn't
Maybe this wasn't what she wanted
You were right when you didn't explain

And in the end I can only look back
And regret
I'm sorry I happened
I wasn't meant to be this way
I hope you understand

A thousand lyrics in my head
I'm listening but I can't hear
This weight's crashing down on me
I won't let go

I cam back to see your face
But it's faded away
I don't know how anymore
I don't know..

Sometimes I wonder
If someone else was better
Impersonating this life
Be me, as me (IMPOSTER)

This wasn't supposed to happen..

Silence is all we hear
Mother reclaims her tears
