I wish you would stop the hiding, the lying, the scheming.
I wish you would let me see the real you no matter how displeasing.
You always cloak yourself in the embrace of what you thought to be appealing.
I cannot take the subliminals, and I refuse to watch you run and hide…
I wish to God you would stop hiding, adding to the complexities, it’s uninviting.
I wish you would stop hiding in that man host of a figure that really a boy resides in.
For once, stop the playing.
Come right out, surrender the blame gaming.
It’s cruel of you to always be the one who’s pain is always alleviated.
I wish the hell you would stop hiding, God knows I’m tired of searching.
I wish you would just admit the truth, that this has never been ‘it’ for you.
I see now why all these things were so difficult for you to say..
It’s because When you say them to yourself, they certainly sting a different way.
