Shattered
betrayed

im afraid this day would come.
 1
 
 
i didnt see it coming.
 2
as I stare at you sleeping.
 3
there's this impulse from within
 4
that makes me strongly want to hug you and just cry...
 5
cry as loud as i could,
 6
cry as much as i could
 7
until my tears run out.
 8
 
 
it doesnt have to be this way.
 9
like for no reason,
 10
what has been burning for years
 11
has finally halted in its own pace and rhythm.
 12
 
 
what should i do?
 13
tell me.
 14
it hurts me so bad that i know
 15
i would eventually have to spill this and hurt you.
 16
i know it would hurt you.
 17
you would bleed
 18
and just the thought of it
 19
shatters my soul.
