Sugar and treats aren't always sweet.

Why is it

That I dream of you

Before we meet

You are kind and sweet

Honestly my kind of treat

Your embrace has crushed my soul

Like an endless pit

Burning to its core

You hurt me in a way

That I have never felt before

I cried for days

And you sang me your tunes

You brought out the me

That only I knew

So uncomfortable

I got so scared

Ran away

And wrecked even more

Haunted by your name

The songs that were sang

And all the memories

That danced away

They make me feel

As if I have gone insane

To feel your pain

Even when you are miles away

What has happened

And why didn’t you stay

Just leaving me to bleed

While you carry on

Your merry little way
