Tears on my pillow

What you did to me back then
I will not see repeat again
For even though you cut me deep
I still reach for you in my sleep
And waking, weep at such sweet dreams
That give me sad rememberings.

Yet through the day I still do fight
These things that happen every night.
In time I hope my dreams may fade
To leave me lonely and afraid.
It seems perverse to choose such pain
I fear I’ll never love again.
For none I’ve kissed, before or since
Has measured up to my dark prince.

But self-destruct I will not do
So I must keep away from you.
