I tried to keep my console,
But slipped out of control.
I tried to keep my cool;
But he went straight to my soul.
Yes, now I agree - that was a powerful thing;
But little did I know I would feel the sting...
Of separation - or perhaps more, his rejection.
Pushed away when I showed my worse reflection.
An unfortunate projection of my deepest insecurity.
Thinking maybe he wouldn’t have liked me, simply for me.
The curse of this self-fulfilling prophecy.
So that’s where it left us.
An ocean apart.
Now a distance in mind.
And only one aching heart.
