The Comforting

1998-2000 Screams

They never say anything new,
And they never seem to realize
I don't want someone to care...
I want someone to love.

Haven't we all been there?
On both sides?
Why do some of us continue
To lie to the others?
It's a blessing in disguise.
You will heal in time.
It isn't the end of the world.
You can do better.

What do you mean it will help me grow?
If I wanted a growing experience,
I would have planted a garden.

They mean well,
Or at least they think they do.
I've had enough of them making me feel better.
I know what to tell myself about you leaving.
It might not be comforting,
But at least it's closer to the truth.
It was nice while it lasted.
Thank you for the delusion.
