Pain Hurts

I thought of you tonight
The sound of this silence ringing in my ears
Highlighting the solitude you’ve left me to
This is how you love me
I’m almost angry, finally
Except that I could never be angry with you
Because I loved you more than I ever loved anyone or anything
Then, out of the blue, you turned your back
And you never spoke my name again
I will always wonder why
I don’t know what I said…what I did
I covered your transgressions and tended your needs as though you were a king
If I could do it all over again
I’d take my hands off the wheel
I would turn my back
And I would listen to you burn to death, inside out
As you went off the rails
You sorry sonofabitch
