She came down so hard on me

I cried so hard a river did fall

Her words so harsh the sea was so clear for all to see

The words like blades of a razor nipping at the tips of my veins

One spot closer and that would be the end

 The next time she promises she’ll shield herself from the pain

But there just doesn’t seem to be a wall high or thick enough

To withstand nor hold back the pain

 Where does she find the strength to keep moving on ahead?

She’s stronger than I was ever meant to be

 Pain is our enemy and is not meant to be a companion

Chase away those feelings

Those people who only come bearing pain

We live this life but once

We hope to hold on as long as we can

The thought of pain or fear shortens our time here in this place

So cancel the slot reserved for those who hurt and move into a new space in time
