i knew it. none of this was ever normal. fighting
everyday over little things was never normal. the family walking
around on eggshells whenever you were home was never normal. mum
had to wrap around in a pretty bow all the words she gave you.
she told it to me straight. it was never normal. lying for you,
covering up your flaws. that's just how you were. you
we're just a difficult person to be around. so fickle, so
turbulent. you laid your childish landmines around the house.
we'd step on them and you'd explode. each time more
aggressive. we always knew it wasn't normal. you dismissed us
as being jealous. in your borderline mind you painted us as the
wrong ones. it was never normal.
