The StronGer Side of Me

By Deathkitten

Do the voices deafen your ears?
The sight of me, does it blind?
Is your heart so dead now
that it cannot be kind?
Will I be shunned eternally
or just a few more years in?
Would you like for me
to confess all my sins?
Have I disappointed you
to depths beyond unreachable
so that you would have an excuse
to let go & take away your hand?
Will I forever be tainted?
Is that the only way
I could ever be painted?
How many apologies would you need?
100, 1,000, 1,000,000 + 3?
Could you ever love me for me?
Have I delivered so much pain
that it is now uneven
and so hard for you to bear?
Do you honestly believe
it's fair to compare?
Would you place all blame on me
if it got you through the gate?
Could we even bond now
or is it just too late?
I'm not so sure I would
'cause all you show is hate
Just know down deep inside
that it's not hard for me to relate
Afterall, you should have known
how it would be
when what you did
was help create
the stronger side of me
