Sharp as knives

Each one pierces my heart a thousand times

I can barely breathe

Why does it hurt so bad?

Why do you hurt so bad?

“I’ve had enough”

Enough of what?

Enough of me?

I’m sorry

Please forgive me

I always forgive you

For your words

The ones that make me cry

You don’t know what you’re saying

You don’t know how it affects me

Why does it still hurt?

Why am I still crying?

Didn’t I cry enough last night?

My head hurts and I feel dizzy now

Your words play back in my head

What can I do to fix this?

What can I do to fix me?

I feel broken

I feel empty

Each one pierces my heart a thousand times

Sharp as knives
