When you walk past me, I can feel the hatred burning in your heart. When we make eye contact, I can feel regret swelling in my throat. When I hear your name, I think about all the good times we had. When I see you smile, I start screaming inside my head to look away. When you run your fingers through your hair, I feel myself die inside. When we avoid each other in the hall, I know everyone can see my pain. When I talk about you, I feel like you're there with me, That's why I do. When I see you, I taste the blood from my cheek warm on my tongue. When I look away, I unclench my jaw before I realize it was even closed When I realize what happened, I make sure nobody saw me staring at you. When I know the coast is clear, I swallow the evidence. When you’re through with me, I will have scars nobody can see.
