A Needle In My Arm
It's like I'm just about to be released
from the hospital of hell that has been my life
I came in with a ripped heart,
broken and scratched,
and they gave me a vaccine,
a needle in my arm,
something to help with the pain.
And I'm packing my things,
and I'm making my bed,
I'm just starting to walk out of my room
Finally realizing that it's coming to an end
Finally catching glimpses of the bright side once more
when you walk in
and punch me in the shoulder.
And the vaccine they gave me
The needle in my arm
The pain of it all comes back
It's like it never happened
Because you punched my sore spot as hard as you could
and sent me reeling back into my hospitalization
as if I'd just had my surgery,
just gone through the transplant.
I never asked you to visit.
I never asked you to come.
I didn't want you to take care of me
or give me a ride
or hold my suitcase.
I didn't ask for that.
I asked for you to leave me
For you to stop
I asked for you to keep yourself to yourself
So I could keep myself from you.
You heard me twice
You'll ignore me thrice
And being the good friend you are,
you'll punch me again
you'll knock me back into this shit
all over again.
