I Didn't Mean To Scare You

look, i never meant to hurt you 

i never even meant to care

i've been hurt too many times before 

honestly i think we've all been there. 

i never meant to scare you,

to tell you about my past.

it's just, you're the only one who had a clue

that the smile i wore was a mask.

i never meant to break open 

to speak about the Greyroom 

but, well my soul had chosen

had to speak, i was being consumed.

afterwords you seemed frozen

i really am sorry i scared you.

didn't mean to show i was broken

but i wish it was a joke too.
