Time and time again I’ve hurt myself to save another

So many scars cover my skin but where are yours?

A friend is no friend if they take kindness and never give back


But finally I won’t let you in again

I will only help your feelings when you have done so for mine

I won’t have you weighing down my smile


There have been hidden words on my tongue longing to show

I’ll let them out to create that strength you took away

The heart on my sleeve won’t be taken advantage of anymore


You can no longer use me and toss me away

No one can with this new security around my feelings

You better leave now, before you regret crossing me…
