It's Not Me It's You

I stare out the window
A single tear slides down my cheek
You ask what's wrong
All I can say is nothing.
Nothing at all
Don't worry about me
I'm fine
But I'm lieing
You see it in my eyes
What you don't see
Is that what's wrong here is you
You've changed
You were wonderful and full of life
You were the reason I smiled
The reason I could be happy
But now
You've changed
You don't even acknowledge me
Unless something is wrong
Well it's you
You; sucking the life from me
Pulling me into this black hole
That you have created.
All I want is to be free again
Free to live and feel joy
Free to be me
But according to you
There's something wrong about me
You say you love me
But not the things I do
Well hear this
The things I do are part of me
The parts that make me whole
That make me me
But you don't see
With you everything I do is wrong
Everything a pain
I'm just a pest to you
Yet you won't let me go
It's like you caught me in a butterfly net
Only I'm not a butterfly
All you see is this moth
