The infection spreads


I keep you at a distance,

far away from causing me harm.

A single step and the very foundation of my walls start to break,

keep away, you’re more than I can take.

A single laugh, the sound of your voice,

sweet intoxication, you’re poison in my veins.

Bleed you out, cry and rage,

you’re still there, taunting me from outside my cage.

You don’t know what you do to me,

I’d rather die than let you see.

Close my eyes, lock it all away,

refuse to be caught in the maze of yesterday.

Pretend that nothing can get to me,

slip into a role, make believe.

Don’t say another word,

such a beautiful kind of grace.

It hurts to look at you,

my mind is corrupted, if only you knew.

Yeah I’m unaffected when you smile,

nothing can get to me, you’re not worth my while.

Always in the dark I feel you near,

stop haunting me, I don’t want you here.
