It’s like hitting your pinky toe in the corner of a door way
As you dance
Like slamming the door on your fingers
Or getting stuck as you jump a fence
It’s like, poking your own eye
Or hitting a rock as you dive
So hyped then suddenly you begin to cry
It’s like, tripping as you play jump rope
Flat on your face, you fall and so does your hope
Who ever knew…
That it would feel like a pin getting stuck in your finger
“It takes patience” they say,
But the pain won’t go away
And as they walk off you’re left feeling astray
Painful I tell you….painful
It’s that pain you feel as a kid when your ice cream suddenly drops
Such a sweet thing covered in dirt, your heart suddenly stops…
Beating, yourself up for not holding on tight
For letting go of the one thing that had you up all night
It’s that pain…that pain when you fall off a bike
So psyched as you hop on, until you accidentally pull the brakes
And go flying…again flat on your face
Oh breaks…is that really what it takes?
What if you still want to keep eating that cake?
What if you want that pain of feeling bloated, is there really that much at stake?
It’s like that pain of knowing an important promise has been broken
That pain that’s so painful it leaves you shocked,
And blocked as you can’t express the pain you feel
So you deal with it…
Negotiating with your mind
Trying to convince your sensory nerves
That it doesn’t hurt,
NO! It will not hurt
But you’re not in time, it’s too late…
A knife through the heart
Break…it’s so easy to say.
Painful I tell you…painful.
