50.

I have never known peace
only rage, only pack-up-and-leave
because why would I
tell the truth about the storm
when I could as easily lie

and you could think of me as sweet
as beautiful, as a partner

I have only ever been alone
waiting for you to up-and-go
because you will prove me right
and I have always known

Give me an outlet, give me peace
because if I can’t make this work
you may as well leave
