I hit the ignore button
when you called today.
I have no excuses of why
I just didn’t have anything to say.

I don’t want to hurt you,
so I keep you at arms length.
I can’t pick you up when you fall.
I don’t have the strength.

I don’t want to see you today.
I don’t want to hold hands.
I don’t want to tell you this,
but it is another man.

The one you’ve always feared
in the back of your mind.
The one you always secretly knew
I could never leave behind.

Until I get these feelings figured out
I’ll just hit ignore.
I don’t want to leave you waiting around
like all the times before.
