born Wrong

she’s scared of me
I smothered her
and now I’m a monster
for giving —- space
did I do something
scary?

and I’m tired of hearing
that I did wrong
made it wrong
born wrong

my marks on her skin
now
all hers now
take it all from me
again

scared of me,
walking on egg shells,
broken, angry, useless

what did I do
when did I do
anything
scary?
