by Heather's Starting End


I came down hard on you
Came down really hard
Disappointment in my head
Neglect swam in my heart

Disappointed in myself
While I neglect to comprehend
The light you bring in to my life
But the darkness I defend

I cast a shadow on the good
For fear of if it’s lost
I’m closer to the rational
It wasn’t worth its cost

Shower me
My ego pleads
With love
Secure my mind

Kill the shadows
That torment me
That love deserved
S’not mine

I came down on you hard again
As egotistic I
Just wanting to be next to you
To pause the time that flies

Into days of struggle that
Turn to weeks
At mercy of the clock,
Weeks of Mondays
Each given month
Time carousel won’t stop

I came down hard
On you again
Came down hard
It’s true
My shadows’ truth is fear of loss
It’s fear of losing you
