Close my eyes

Runaway and hide

Don’t let them inside

They’ll just hurt you, not really there for you

All they do is lie


All that have tried

That had sat with me while I cried

They’ve left and moved on

Left not even a memory to cry on


So afraid to try

Heard too many lies

Felt too many goodbyes


One day I’ll try

Give them another chance

But for now I’ll just

Keep quiet and watch from a far

not ready for more scars
