Look Me In The Eye

Look Me In The Eye (9/2/2012)

Fighting the urge to cry
Just ‘gotta let it lie in the past
Telling myself to forget
Memories burned in my eyes
Its not as easy
As you claim
Its not as simple
As you portray

How do I make myself trust
You to truly care?
How do I look in your eyes?
When you always turn away
You make me feel like a failure
‘Cause I can’t move past this

I’m beginning to wonder the real reason
I always assumed it was that event
When suddenly I’m thinking
Maybe the constant sadness
Isn’t from that
Maybe I moved past it long ago
But I still need to talk about it from time to time
And you just refuse to look me in the eyes

How do I make myself trust
You to truly care?
How do I look in your eyes?
When you always turn away
You make me feel like a failure
‘Cause I can’t move past this

What will you do?
If I discover the real cause
For this never-ending sadness
Is you?
‘Cause the lack of support really hurts
The look of annoyance when I mention his name
The sigh that you make when I say
“What happened when I was eleven”
What’ll you do?
Will you feel any form of guilt
Will you even care?
Will you just shrug and repeat your mantra
“Get over it”
“Just let it go”
You’re a broken record
Now be decent parents and
Look me in the eye when you say
“You should be over it by now” 

The End
