I am an asshole. Forcing you into something that you didn’t want.
Honestly saying what I feel turns your whole life upside down.
You said you have forgiven. I didn’t even realize that it was required.
What I always told as a cheerful story had become your bitter taste of reality.

I’m dealing with words all my life and still can’t use them right.
The pacifist was overwhelmed by the violator tonight.
He’s crying at your shoulder, wondering what I’ve done to you.
Is this for real – that misery that you’ve been through was caused by me?

I am an ignorant, arrogant prick, destroying your art within a few lines.
Of course the truth can hurt sometimes, but phrasing it can burn your soul.
I’m frightened by the power of words – build up, tear down.
Maybe I should shut my mouth forever – but how then even apologize?
