Running on Empty



I know that I scared you,
It’s not hard to see why.
The past’s unfinished business,
A crush that you would try.

Afraid, I was frantic,
And quickly pushed you away.
Not knowing of the heartache,
Not knowing you wouldn’t stay.

I pushed you into a corner,
Lashed out – you retaliate.
A promising new beginning,
Snuffed out – seemingly fake.

You made my heart feel happy,
There was comfort in your arms.
I laughed at your devotion,
I was taken by your charm.

Perfect is in the simple,
Not trying to be more.
My apologies for having lost you,
As I come knocking at your door.
