Easily Not Said

-

When the world drags on

And drags me out of bed

I can't exactly cry about it

When I stop to smell the roses

I choke up with tears

Because you're no longer here

The madness of without-you-ness

That floods thee ideas of you in my head

Only traps me to feeling

__the loss of you

____in my heart

But I refuse to fall apart

You wrecked my life

__with you being gone

And I destroyed it even further

__with the words I can't reverse

____and unsay

So I tie myself up

With errands to run

Knowing there's no you

To help me not be me

As alone as can be

Fuck what the world says

There's no way you could be mine

Our tall tale has a "goodbye" in it

And the "goodbye" has already been said

I'm just trying not to say it back to you

But you don't need me to

You've said it loud enough

__for the both of us
