never yours

don’t tell me i’m too much
to keep hold of
when i never asked you
to hold me.

mine was never yours to control,
yet you decided to try

forcing
all my broken pieces
into your version of perfect.

well i’m not perfect
and i’m not yours.
i never was,

nor did i need saving.
when you tried to save me,

secretly putting me in harm’s
(your) way
just to come to my rescue,

you obviously didn’t know
i’d already gathered
enough strength

to save myself
from you.

i saw what you were doing
and i took great care
to see through you
and your blinding lies.

so don’t tell me
i’m too damaged
for you to fix.

i never wanted your type
of medicine
poisoning my blood.

i never asked you
to be
anywhere near me,

so don’t blame me
when you need to walk away.

don’t tell me i’m too hard
to handle
when i never gave you permission
to touch me.

i was never yours.
