fix you

i told myself i’d fix him
show him that killing isn’t his path
but he’s psychotic and poetic
i guess i didn’t do the math.

i told myself i’d fix her
show her that judgement is kind
but she’s harsh and honest
i guess it didn’t cross my mind.

i told myself i’d fix him
show him that love does exist
but he’s stubborn and untrusting
i guess that’s something i missed.

i told myself i’d fix you
show you the error of your way
but you were right all the while
i guess bitterness doesn’t pay.

i told myself i’d fix me
show myself where I went wrong
but who i was is better at this
i guess i was the broken one all along
