i just want to scream! (PG)

it is not in my nature to hide beneath a facade
my ruins and my beauty are visible to all.
to be someone else is a veil to discard,
if only it were simple to do when you call.
what conditioned or preceded you?
or is it me?
are my intentions askew
to continue to burn out my energy.
i’m perplexed about how i feel
do i really care.
is there any appeal
that we can share.
i don’t feel obliged but i’m willing to support
i fathom the likeness when the journey doesn’t bode well.
i understand that life, it does thwart.
and all that escapes you is a yawp and yell.
much wisdom do i have to impart
to prevent you from damage,
it’s not too backward to start
trust me, and have courage.
we squandered our connection,
you have insufficient knowledge of my woe.
there is too much tension,
so much, i just wish that you’d go.
if i could grit my teeth through a fanciful smile
whilst i bathe in your utterances
which do not beguile;
this might be what pleases.
i feel incapable of such,
i can’t.
it’s the off button i want so much;
my frustrations i wish to supplant.
i can’t just beam and signal
while my insides recoil.
if this sensation was easy to annul,
one might endure reduced turmoil.
i feel angry and ill,
leave me alone.
on the inside there’s a sound that is shrill
and you wouldn’t appreciate my tone.
will distance keep us safer?
are we improved apart?
i really don’t want to be a martyr
or somehow mutilate your heart.
i just want to scream…
i just want to scream…
