remember when you asked me
what one thing would all your exes say about you?
i should have answered
that i’m always running away.
and what could i blame?
that thing no one talks about
the home i grew up in
all the bad things that happened when no one was looking.
(do you know how many times i’ve broken my own heart)
you’ve just taught me to stay,
even if you don’t want to stay.
