They're only words, a bunch of letters,
Black marks on a bright screen,
So why can't she bring herself to delete them,
Put them where they'll never again be seen?
All it would take is one push of a button,
And they would be gone for eternity,
She wouldn't have to endure them,
Those loving words of agony.
She doesn't understand,
She's not a glutton for pain,
Yet she can't tell anyone about it,
Else they'd think her insane.
But as she gazes down at those beautiful words,
She can't stop the glittering in her eyes,
Can't she keep them a little longer?
Just until her love for you dies?
She hates herself for being so weak,
And she knows what she should do,
But she's afraid of doing it,
Because she's terrified of forgetting you.
Only one thing she knows for certain,
And it must stay true,
She can't let you know how much she hurts,
Because she knows it would kill you.
