“can you turn the brightness of your screen down?” By Julia in her bed

Said by Joe

I walk into a room and I own it because I know what I’m capable of and you say first and foremost to calm down
Or to talk quieter
Or to try harder
And then
That’s when I know you can’t handle me and I don’t need you to and if you try to you’ll have to die first
You think I’m a threat so you keep dimming my light
Isn’t that the way it goes?
You too young to know how stupid it is to be a man of jealousy and insecurity?
How stupid it is to be so wounded when lifting her would lift you up even more?
