You’ve been trying

To figure me out

Looking so deeply

In all the wrong spots

The truth is hidden

Far from your view

I can tell from here

You’re just not capable

Of looking beyond

What you can see

I want to trust you

But I just don’t feel it

Scared to be hurt

I am guarding myself

From the pain hiding

In what you don’t say

Omission from responsibility

Has left you guilty

You’ve been trying hard

To hide what I see

And it breaks me up inside

To think you must be ashamed

Why do I have to pretend

Like I just don’t care

I hate you for overlooking

That I am human too

I have invaded a private world

Where I do not belong

And it hurts me to say

That I just cannot stay
