don't ask me for anything
and you might just get it
ask me for things
and i'll feel every pressure
like a gunpoint to my brain
the sweat down to my toes
athlete's foot- you'd think it'd be for athletes

i'll want so much to make you happy
because i know exactly how that feels
to want something from someone
and they promise it
and deliverance
never comes

i don't want to do that to anybody
because i know how

broken promises feel


just realized

i'm the one everyone looks at
and then feels better about themselves.
