It Hurts Too Much

It hurts too much

The tears keep coming. Even when I'm numb, they won't stop falling. 

 

It hurts too much

The pain I feel. I try to stand but can only kneel. 

 

It hurts too much

I try to drown it out. With pills and booze, and plenty of self-doubt. 

 

It hurts too much

My heart, you see. It remembers the way we used to be. 

 

It hurts too much 

I know you hurt too. But it was easier to walk away than to see it through.

 

It hurts too much 

To see the dreams I already had. To see the life that I wanted to live. 

 

It hurts too much

Because you were the missing piece. To the puzzle that now has ceased.
