everything is a lie and everyone is completely full of shit

from by default genders



like i care if i can never own a home
what's the point if i have to live in it alone
like i care about the mess i'd leave behind
i've been so fucking careful my whole life

just this one time i will leave
and not spend most of the night worrying
about how i am going to get home
just this one time i will be
someone you want to take out to things
and not who you take everything out on

like i care what other places i could go
i'm not even curious to know
like i'm scared about the likelihood of pain
pain has been like family to me

just this one time i will leave
and not spend all day at work wondering
if you will still be there when i get home
so just this one time can you please
act like you would run away with me
and not like i'm the thing you're running from?
