Hard and Heavy.

This is my cup of spirit, 
drop by drop by venom drop
you poured it on the ground.

They were only words,
but tears and tears and tears I cry,
you've never heard the sounds.

Father, can't you see that I
am crippled now? I'm terrified.
The mirror's not so nice anymore.
The scale's higher than before.
The yellow tape goes much too far.
I wish you could see my scars.

I wish you could hear my thoughts.
I bet it would be too much.
Maybe for five minutes today,
You'd never speak those words you say.
