Because I Couldn't Let You Go

Because I Couldn't Let You Go

I felt the torture burning,

Just like a fireplace.

My soul went up in flames,

When you took my heart away.

I stood there many nights,

I stood there many days.

I stood there as my soul slowly,

Burned and faded away.

I watched the ashes float,

I wanted them to stay.

I reached out and grabbed them,

But they only went astray.

My eyes filled with tears,

And swept silently down my face.

I didn't feel anything,

I was numb with the cold's embrace.

I wanted to be there,

I didn't want to feel.

The only thing I wanted to be fake,

Was the only thing truly real.

It cut into me swiftly,

Slicing slowly going deep.

My pain was so unreal,

That I only wished for sleep.

I only wanted to be somewhere,

Other than where I was.

I wished I never knew you,

And that was only because...

You never stopped cutting,

You didn't or wouldn't ever know.

The only reason I forgave,

Was because I couldn't let you go.
