You make me feel like the aggressor
And that I hurt you
When I am hurting
It looks like you don’t care
That your feelings are more important
Heavier
That they’ll crush you but not me
But I am not that strong
I can’t lift myself up
When I reach for tall tree branches
I need a stool
Or a web of hands
To push on
Support me
You rip that away
Light my web on fire
With the raw callouses on your fingers
Struck against my skin
I don’t think you see the welts
Or you see, but you don’t care
Or you see, and you care, but don’t think that you are to blame
Because you’re the only victim here
