Not Your Fight

don’t let me use you.

don’t let me
need you,
trust you,
open up
to you.

i’ve pushed too many people
off of a bridge,
while i watched it burn.

i’m unfair,
and needy.
i’ll crush you
with desperation.

i’m pretty sure it’s my fault.

i should know by now
what to do about it
by myself.
and i do,
but i can’t—
or maybe won’t—
put up a good fight.

don’t let me use you.

you’re someone,
and i’m no one,
and this isn’t
your fight
to win.
