Tell Me

Image

Call it a dream

An illusion

 

Please just don’t tell me it was real

 

Say it was a mirage

A delusion

 

The way I used to feel.

 

Tell me that wasn’t me,

The fool

 

Who gave so easily of her heart

 

Let me know I didn’t cry,

Don’t be cruel

 

I wasn’t torn apart

 

I cant remember myself,

You see

 

I’ve pushed the memories so far back

 

I remember loving

Being free,

 

And then it all goes black.

 

Tell me I was strong,

Took it well,

 

Noone knew my world lay in shards.

 

Did I use a mask of oblivion,

Pray tell,

 

I didn’t crash too hard.

 

But you are silent I see,

You don’t say,

 

The things I need to save my pride

 

Your look holds pity,

I know I will pay

 

For all the secrets I couldn’t hide

 

Love is cruel is it not my friend?

It takes and takes

 

Till you are all dry

 

AhI see I did bleed myself,

The proof is in

 

That there are no more tears to cry
