Don’t kick me when I’m down

Damaged people still hurt –
Don’t kick me when I’m down.
You said you’d always be around,
I believed in your lies, your love for me
But now I see.
I disappeared, subsumed by your personality,
Became who you wanted me to be.

Damaged people still hurt –
Don’t kick me when I’m down.
You let me drown.
I’ve learned to let go of my anxieties,
Allowed society
To support me emotionally, dispel your piracy
And permit myself to just be me.
