“I should put a bell around you” I say as you join me in the break room.
But you just smirk and shake your head
Cautiously working your way around where I stand.
I can see my words bother you.
Well they bother me too
Do you know how much courage it took me to admit such weakness
That your very sudden appearance leaves me shaking.
You can try as you might to convince me you are not the type
But I can’t, no I can’t
Because to me you are every guy.
You are him
The one who lied to me and treated me as if I committed the greatest sin
Saying no was my saving grace but it was thrown into my face
Over and over again
Forced by people who leave all because They did not believe.
A liars only excuse was love because I was never enough
“I should put a bell around you” I whisper as a hold my arms close to my chest
Hiding the fact that I am losing my breath
My chest is hurting and my heart won’t stop
I can see your shaken because you do not understand
But It is ok
Because Neither do I
