Don’t laugh at me if I cry, please,
you do not know half of my tale.
Don’t tease the tears in my eye,
Don’t remind me that I’ve failed.
Don’t leave me alone in a room,
the darkness makes me scared.
You remember when the dark
used to hide beasts, their fangs bared.
Don’t tell me I am strange, please,
I would love to not be this way.
But I am who I am, forevermore,
So everyone, simply, walks away.
Don’t leave me to my own devices,
I’ll go to sleep forever before dawn.
And if you do, decide to walk away,
Please don’t miss me when I’m gone.
