Come Back To Me

Written by: Kara McLain

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

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

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
                 Inside
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
                             Her
                                You
                    
Me.
