Iterative heartbreaks

Written by: SAMPRITI BHATTACHARYYA

I woke up and you were there
Every little hope was here
It was a while, someone had been nice
You said the words I wanted to hear
Be there when I felt so weird
Lonely could be saying goodbye.

I had my doubts, didn’t tell it loud
Told myself, try it out
Didn’t expect it  to turn this way
And I was trying so hard
To be in love, but you got it all wrong.
And I was trying so hard
Not to get hurt, but here’s my sad song.

And I wish you didn’t pretend
This life was just fine by myself
Why knock my door, why mess me for more?
Don’t you know of those scars?
That are unhealed from the past?
And the horrors I been through?
So I crept in my shell
Till you came along
And asked me to peak out
And go through it again.

I had my doubts, didn’t tell it loud
Told myself, try it out
Didn’t expect it  to turn this way
And I was trying so hard
To be in love, but you got it all wrong.
I was trying so hard
Not to get hurt, but here’s my sad song.
