I can tell that you're hurting, love.
I see it in the dimness of your smile.
the way I look in your eyes
& feel like I'm running for miles
just to get to you.
You're here but you're not here.
all of the pain in your voice.
I see the way you let the music take you
just to block out all the noise
inside your head.
Thoughts racing like a speedway,
you dwell so hard on the past.
Thinking everyone & everything
will be just like everything that didn't last.
But what scares you so, my dear?
Is it really your memories
or just the pure uncertainty of the future?
I find you always running back to the emptiness
because it's the only thing that comforts you there,
The only feelings you've ever known…
Anger, confusion, sadness.
You'd do anything & everything
just to try to escape the agony & the madness
But if you let me in, I promise you,
there will be no reason to run
from everything you thought you knew
& everything you think you've become.
Let me show you.
I don't want to change you, but allow me to heal
your oh, so broken soul.
To take you from all that surrounds you
& mend a heart that's meant to grow.
You just have to trust me.
You have to learn to let go.
