Close to Me

Wed, 06/18/2014 - 18:07 -- Chayle

 

I pray for you, even though I know you don't hear me
I don't want to hurt you, even though I know
That's all you're capable of, at least it seems
And I refuse to let my disappointment show
 
Yes, it really does hurt me
That you never even tried to figure out
What's there past all that you see
But, I won't let it be allowed
 
I won't let you close enough to hurt me
Because your mentality is pivoted in the wrong way
Scratching at that familiar ache within this chaotic sea
I don't know you either, so please don't stay
 
You're the absolute worst; and your ego too fluffed
You don't know anything about beauty
It's more than skin deep y'know, and not enough
To sustain any of that truth in me
 
Somehow, I still keep praying for you
Hoping one day that God will let you see
The absolute diamond that is the truth
Maybe then, I will let you get close to me
