It’s true what the song says,
First cut does hurt the deepest,
And no matter how much I try,
The wound will not heal,
And the gushing blood makes it impossible to stitch.
I’ve found a new love and so have you.
Ignorance is bliss they say,
But ignorance can’t stop the memories seeping back.
Memories tinged in roses,
The mind creating fabrications of moments past.
I thought I was over you,
My new love near perfect for me,
Giving and treating me the way I dared to dream.
But with this perfect situation my illusion is shattered,
And the truth I tried to bury, arose.
I gave myself to you,
So wholly and undeterred you became my world.
You know things I have never shared with others,
Secrets, desires and fears: information lost in the abyss.
There is a whole part of me that you still have,
And my barriers are on high alert not to let that happen again.
First cut hurts the deepest and always will,
But I can’t let it affect my future anymore.
And as the song says I’ll try to love again,
