Like a shadow he sweeps in from above,
Blocking the light from my mind,
He attempts to smother me with memories,
Trying to drown me in love.
Why can’t he just let me be?
The pain he causes is plain to see,
The devastation he unleashes upon my life
Is bordered with the best of intentions
But leaves only strife.
His words are honey laced with cyanide,
He poisons the air as I run and hide,
Left with nothing more then a broken heart,
Why can’t he just let me make a new start?
Instead he makes the phone start to ring,
Ignoring the tears that each call brings,
If I pick it up I will surely fall,
Why is there nothing I can say that will end it all?
So like a flame I try to fight the dark,
With sword and chain I protect my heart,
Dodging the ringing that seems to never end,
Hiding deep inside where I can pretend
That maybe, just maybe, he’ll leave me alone.
