Come Back To Me

I cringe
          When you say my name
Because I’m afraid
Of what I might do
                          To you

I scream
But you won’t listen
To anything I say
                        About you

I stumble in the dark
Trying to find the switch
To the person I know you are
                             Not who you pretend to be.

I’ve seen the light 
That shines from your eyes
When you appear to be whole
                             Not what the world has made.

You make a fire burn
To know that you can be true
                             To you
                                   Not them.

I wish you could see
                  Just what you’re doing,
Who you’re hurting
