A poem and song for you

This is a poem I wrote about a year ago about self-despise:

Our eyes meet with tears
We wince away in fear
I look once more and see
You frowning right back at me
"Go away!" I yell at you
And you mock me with the same pain too
We growl and hiss and snarl
Yet we watch each other with sorrow
Then finally I've had enough
Our fists connect so rough
And the glass shatters..
And it doesn't matter..
Because I'll never call your bluff
This blood on our fists won't be enough
So I crumble to the floor
And sob as I look once more
Through a broken bloodied window
I see that I will never grow
For the one with the tainted frown
Is the person that I am
The person that I'll be
And the person looking back at me


And here's the song version:

Welllll...

Our eyes meet with tears
We wince away in fear
I look once more and see
You frowning right back at me


"Go away!" (echo: GO AWAY!) I yell at you
And you mock me with the same pain too
We growl and hiss and snarl
Yet we watch each other with sorrow


Then finally I've had enough
Our fists connect so rough
And the glass shatters..
And it doesn't matter..

Looking back at me..
GO AWAY!
Is all I see..
GO AWAY!
GO AWAAAAAAAY!

I'll never call your bluff
This blood on our fists won't be enough
So I crumble to the floor
And sob as I look once more

Through a broken bloodied window
I see that I will never grow
For the one with the tainted frown
Is the person that I am
The person that I'll be
And the person looking back at me

Looking back at me..
GO AWAY!
Is all I see..
GO AWAY!
GO AWAAAAAAAY!

GO AWAAAAAAAY!
GO... AWAAAAAAAAY!
...go awaaaay..
Looking back at me, go awaaaaay..
