Justifying

I smashed all of your hopes because I no longer have mine
I spoiled all of your dreams because I can't sleep anymore
I blurred your smile because my life has become empty
I buried your love because my heart couldn't handle it

Do not ask me why I'm justifying myself

I blindfolded my eyes because I couldn't stand seeing you again
I forgot myself because I couldn't forget the memories of you
I silenced my lonely voice because I couldn't hear yours
I tied my aching hands because I wasn't able to numb them

Do not ask me why I'm justifying myself

All the answers have withered
All the reasons have disappeared
Dispersed inside me
Hidden inside you
Lost between us
