hold your hands open - it's broken

what is it about love
keeps me coming back
back to the pain and disappointment
that always follows my heart

years i keep myself
locked in that tower
convinced my life is good
complete without one person

never letting anyone in
keeping them all "just friends"
cold, distant, safe

then you come along
and brought laughter
serenity, peace, contentment

in such a short amount of time
you made me open to life
saying goodbye to all the others

maybe that's what went wrong
showing you and telling you
that you had me, touched me

your toothbrush sits on my sink
your scent on my pillow
reminders that you were here
but no more

where do i go from here
how do i move on
not from you
but from the idea of you

the love that once again
comes so close to my grasp
and like the wind, moves on
a distant memory
an added scar
thicker walls

to reinforce in me
that the past really does influence the future
the pain i caused
those who tried to love me
is now the pain i feel
for love is not to be mine
is not to be deserved
