And every time you hurt me, the less that I cry…

Way Too Good at Goodbyes

Pain ebbs and flows. Learning to mend, pick up the shattered fragments a piece at a time. Beware the sharp points that will slice into you as you retrieve them. Pain comes in sharp gasps and drips red-hot. As the drops fall, so do the tears. Detachment begins, masking the fury and betrayal. 
Refusing to stoop to the lowest rung, determined to keep herself strong. But nobody sees the tears that well up, so easily distracted by her smile. Each day is a struggle to breathe and start anew. 

All the lies and the deceit. Reeling from all the hits. She keeps going, she keeps loving but she keeps hurting. Wondering when it can fade, the scar’s still too fresh. She is moving in slow motion as the rest of the world zooms past. Bright lights flashing past as the world plunges into darkness. 

She turns to Him, praying for ease.

I Can’t Make You Love Me

I Can’t Make You Love Me – Bonnie Raitt (Tank’s version) by Leroy

Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me
Tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don’t patronize
Don’t patronize me

‘Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something that it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t
‘Cause I can’t make you love me, if you don’t

I’ll close my eyes, then I won’t see
The love you don’t feel when you’re holding me
Morning will come and I’ll do what’s right
Just give me till then to give up this fight
And I will give up this fight

‘Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t
‘Cause I can’t make you love me, if you don’t
