Selfish

Are you happy?
Please tell me you are happy.
Do you smile?
Please tell me you smile.

I have taken so much from you
I have caused you so much pain
I want to take it all back
But for now, I can't

I need to know you live
For my own, selfish justification
I know I ask you to much
I just cannot help myself

You should know I am selfish
You should know I am mean
You should know I am not perfect
You should know me

Of course, those are just excuses
They hold no real meaning
They are just words I utter
To make it bearable for me

I am still being unfair
Asking so much of you
It seems to be something I cannot help
So please forgive me

The End
