I say I’m sorry

I’m confused

You hurt me

But you say I’ve hurt you

I say I’m sorry

You don’t apologize

You say that you were just a novelty

Some prize

You say I don’t need you

Like you need me

But that’s not true

You mean so much more to me

So around and around we go

On this merry-go-round of our own making

Spinning faster

Gears smoking

Metal grinding

Until it goes up in flames

Us in the middle

I refuse to let go

You loosen your grip

To safety you go

I’m left in the flames

Wondering when things went wrong

Wracking my brain over word choices

Wish you were here to help walk me through

Flames consume me

But I let them to feel the pain

Because I imagine this is how you felt

When you said I hurt you

I’m confused

You hurt me

But you say I’ve hurt you

I say I’m sorry

I’m really sorry
