Pre-Programming

I wish my heart

Knew better

 

I wish I didn’t

Let you hurt me

 

But your words

Slice at my heart

Reopening wounds

I tried to put away

 

I wish my heart

Knew better

Than to believe

You changed

 

Than to believe

You love me

For who I am

 

That you don’t want to

Fix me’

 

Like I am a

Broken doll

 

Made for you to

Dress

Color in

Sit on your shelf

 

Look pretty

For you

 

Dance to the

Melody of your Lies

 

Hypnotizing me into believing

The steps my heartbeat

Asks for are wrong

 

I wish my brain

Knew better

Then to tell my

Heart to hush

 

I wish my soul

Felt Better

Didn’t forget

Pretend

Suffocate

 

I’m speaking

To the mirror

 

Their voices

From my lips.
