Please put it away. Just give it up. Do you see the tears falling from my face? Each one glistens as bright as your perfect little liquor. Mom said to forgive you. I did you see, But you keep adding to your list of broken promises and stinging words That you chuck at me. Please throw them away. Just give them up.
I let you hug me last night When you cried and apologized to me Tears swelled up in your eyes and soaked into my sweatshirt. Please throw your crying act away. Just give it up.
Because I already forgave you For when I was 3 and you hurt mommy and me. I already forgave you For when you made me think my life was about to end at the age of 10. I already forgave you For when I was 17 and you made me drop to my knees and painfully sob my chest out. I already forgave you.
I wanted your love for the longest time But now there's a numbness That grows more and more From each heart ache You place in my life.
I already forgave you, It's just these images And feelings of fear Are stuck in my head.
I just need to put them away. I just need to give them up.
Images in my head... A picture really does last longer.
