I’m tired of having to convince you

that I don’t care too much.

I remember your birthday and your brother’s name 

but that’s no reason to put up such a fight.


I can decide if I want my own heart broken.

You don’t need to protect me from yourself.

Take me off your heavy shoulders 

I’ll be my own responsibility.
