You stand there
Your arms wrapped around me
Pulling me closer
why are you doing this?
Why aren't you letting me reject you?
I want to be alone
Like I always was
Like I always am
I don't want to be close to you
Not to you
Not to anyone
Not even to myself
I pull myself out of your arms
And look you in the eyes
It was all over
I ran back to you
And cried into your chest
You pulled me back into your warm hug
And never was I free again
