I'M Sorry I Can'T Be Perfect

You came into my life
And soon enough became one of my best friends
We can make each other laugh faster than anyone else
And we have shared so many good memories
But as time went on
Each time we would get together
It felt as if you were only there to put me down
It was like I was the one you loved to hate
You pointed out every flaw I had
And every mistake I made
I couldn’t seem to do anything right anymore
You always had to be right
No matter what I would say it was wrong
And yet I never said anything
I let it roll off my shoulders
Hoping that it was just a phase
And that you would get over it
But now things are still the same
You haven’t changed
I’m sorry I can’t be perfect like you
I wish you could just accept me for me
And not the person you want me to be
