I was leading a life full of hurt and pain
Efforts to find happiness were in vain
I needed to break free from this living hell
And wished, to someone, my story I could tell

You came into my world as a welcome relief
I poured to you my life and all my grief
You helped me move on and find clarity
Between the mists of confusion, I found sanity

I kept telling myself you didn't mean much to my being
I kept my distance to protect my heart from breaking
A heart that was broken, battered and brimming with pain
That didn't have the resilience to be broken again

But the days flew by and I found myself in love
The feeling so heady, I was free as a dove
And I told you I could reciprocate and give you a shoulder strong and sound
To cry on, to be yourself, to help you find your ground

But what you told me left me devastated and stunned
I find myself falling into the abyss I had shunned
I am now trying to run away from my life and you
But wherever I look, I see you

I am bleeding and shattered, dying to die
My tears having evaporated, I can’t even cry
I need a last drop of water before death comes through
And holding that precious glass, standing before me is you
