Goodbye Stranger

After all we’ve been through Turns out

We never knew each other well

Thought that we had each other’s back

Thought that we could be friends after what we have been through

But boy was I wrong

I never imagined you always felt that way about me, your only son

I never knew all the resentment you had pinned inside

Waiting for the right moment to strike

never knew I disgusted you

All the while, I always aimed to please you

Boy was I ever more blindfolded

Was I ever so naive

In thinking you would change

In thinking you would grow to like me
