Feelings are different now
The sound of your voice
And my emotions are out of control
Tears welling up in my weary eyes
A romance turned to friendship
With the blink of an eye
Simply you ask, are you okay?
What is the answer you want to hear?
I'm not okay, it takes time
A sense of normalcy was returning
Only to be torn down
Sound of your voice makes me weak
A friendship is what remains
One that I’m not sure I can reciprocate
A broken heart is in question
Protecting me comes first
This time around.
