Tug of War

Instinct yanks me one way
Then the other

But I’ll never know
I feel smothered

Give me time
Give me space

Let me heal
Just give me a chance to feel

I’m broken
Can’t find the pieces

I’m choking
The pressure’s on

I don’t know myself
And now you’re gone

Everything I thought I knew
Nothing makes sense
And I’m thinking of you

Torn to pieces
Ripped to shreds
Crumbled up, stomped on
Left for dead

Head versus heart
Logic versus intuition
Lust versus love versus fear

I just can’t hide
This tug of war doesn’t end
I’m splitting apart
I’m terrified
