Turning Away

Watching you walk away
Was more painful than a thousand hells
Seeing the coldness in your eyes
As you said you never cared
Made those thousand hells a paradise
I loved you
And all you did was turn away
What did I do
To make you hate me so
That all you wanted
Was to turn you back
And leave me alone
You were my first real friend
The first person I ever trusted
I thought I meant something
But I guess I was wrong
Now I’m so cold
I can’t feel anything
Nothingness is all you gave me
And now all I can do
Is look her in the eye
As she confesses her love
And turn away
