If You Wait Around Awhile, I’ll Make You Fall For Me. I Promise You; I Will.

The purpose of this past is for one reason only.

I can’t handle being rejected.

I tried to figure out a great metaphor to provide you with a visualization of this feeling.

I failed.

I fail often.

People think I am not aware of my shortcomings, ironically.

I find this incredulous.

My shortcomings are the only things that I am aware of, in fact. Every moment. Every day. In my sleep, every night.

I digress.

The purpose of this post is for one reason only.

To inform.

For your understanding.

It’s astoundingly obvious to me now.

I lash out at everyone and every thing that rejects me.

I spit evil at everyone and every thing that rejects me.

I want to make everyone and every thing that rejects me feel the emotional pain that I feel as a result of said rejection.

So.

If I pretend to hate(???????) you (those who raped, sexually assaulted, or otherwise abused me (and those that protect and defend them) excluded of course) —

That is me reacting to your rejection of me.

That’s all.

The end.

🎶If you need a friend

Don’t look to a stranger
You know in the end, I’ll always be there
But when you’re in doubt
And when you’re in danger
Take a look all around, and I’ll be there
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise, I promise you I will
When your day is through
And so is your temper
You know what to do
I’m gonna always be there
Sometimes if I shout
It’s not what’s intended
These words just come out
With no gripe to bear
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise
I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will🎶
