i've never been good at the whole
affection thing.
in the past i found i gave too much,
but i was just giving what i wanted to get
(though not for a lack of it;
but the more i get the more i crave;
call it an addiction)
lately, i've been thinking
that perhaps i don't give enough.
i know i act aggressive
but it's not because of you.
i've just found it easier
to hurt people
before they hurt me.
(i think of it as self-defense, but sometimes
i see it more as an affliction)
just give me a moment
let me walk twelve steps
i can be okay
our lips pressed together
can be a seal of approval
i can be good enough
i can prove it.
