You came back
after my heart forgot.
You came back to remind it
how it feels to want.
Here I sit, an ache in my chest,
tears hide behind my eyes.
my pride just won't let you see
the fears inside, the tears I've cried.
My mind screams "I can't let you in!"
My heart cries, "I never had you out!"
I wish you'd stayed away
and let me pretend I didn't care.
Pretend I don't love you.
Now, my aching heart is an angry reminder
