i am not as good as you
you do everything better
i just remembered something
there is nothing interesting about me
you have the world watching, waiting
telling us the
hows & whys & whens & wheres
you peel my skin back
to shove all of your “guidance” and “advice” into
until it boils over, bubbles, erupts
all i do is seek attention.
i am repulsive.
those are your ever endearing words
the legacy you are giving me
i just remembered
just how much better you are than me
and i see, that once again,
i need to tiptoe into the bathtub quietly
to wash off my failures again
before you catch me
but this time …
just this once …
Maybe I will bring the toaster into the bubble bath with me.
