I know what it feels like
To be rejected
To be cheated on
To love without receiving it back

I know what it feels like
Because you make me feel it
All over again.

You don’t allow me to forget
You’re not my escape
You’re the ghost that follows me around
Pressing down on my chest at night.
You’re the oven blazing, then you’re like ice wrapped in gold.
My soul under your feet, never to be consoled.
