I remember that day
that dreadful,
October day.
When we dressed
and played.
I remember fear,
coursing through me veins.

I slit my wrist
I did it all for you.
I cut my arms
I did it, so you didn't have to.
I cried my life away
So, that you could move on.
I let go
So, why won't you?

"I remember when you grabbed me by the head.
When you pushed me on the ground.
I remember what you said.
Get the fuck up off the ground."

You showed me that day
what love could be.
I showed you up that day.
So, that you couldn't hurt me.
