Rain on a Tin Roof

I lived a life with strangers once
Strangers who gave birth to me
In an act of defiance
Because there was no other choice to be made
How can you love something you didn’t
Want in the first place
Is that why you hurt me
Is that why you turned away
To hide the screws you turned inside me
The words designed to hurt
The ones that say I love you
Like rain on a tin roof
Painful and false
