There are several things you should know about me:
I laugh a lot
And puns are my second language.
That is a persona.
Maybe it’s the real me.
Frankly, I don’t know myself all that well.
Too scared to do some soul searching
And find out who I really am.
I am almost never serious,
But I am always too serious.
I’m afraid of everything
I like sad songs
That make my heart ache.
They remind me that I have one.
I prefer solitude,
Yet every time you leave my side
The sadness remembers me.
I think this is because with you
I can be alone but not lonely.
I’m still trying to figure out
How that can be.
I get headaches every day,
Sometimes they’re debilitating.
I don’t mind.
I’m one of those who likes the suffering.
I feel like I deserve it.
You could tell me every minute
Of every day
That you like spending time with me
And I will still think my company is an imposition.
I am my Mother’s son
And my siblings brother,
But I will never be my father’s anything
That you know me.
