i can’t be you anymore

By: Hanna Haitham

i can’t be you anymore

every time we meet
a piece of me hides
getting harder to breathe
as i bury it inside

will i stay hidden
or will i show myself the light
faking it is a burden
and it’s getting harder to fight

why do i go through this
what am i doing this for
it’s getting harder to dismiss
i can’t be you anymore

in a house of glass i stay
slowly biding my time
my insecurities come out to play
and that’s why i try to hide
and i guess i know
it’s only a matter of time
before i let the stone go
and the house’ll crash on the inside

why do i hurt myself?
is this all i have to live for?
pretending to be someone else,
i can’t be you anymore

all that i ever was
lays fragmented on the floor
and i put up with it because
i was too insecure

i can’ t do this to myself
help me and open up the door
i can’t be someone else
i’m not you anymore
