I am hurting

But it is you who bleeds

My soul aches

But it is you who cries out in agony

It was such a little thing

But now I have hurt you

And all I can do is stand back and suffer

I am the cause of your pain and so can offer no solace

And that is the cruelest pain of all

Knowing that I cannot erase what I have done

And that what I have done is despicable

And so I shall retreat into the shadows

Wounded and Dammed

My eyes shedding bloody tears

Crying for the lost, wishing for redemption

Undeserving of the only thing that could set me free

Your forgiveness
