Burnt

The summer sun it burns my skin and leaves it raw

Yet somehow the burns you inflected hurt me so much more

They have left me so tender, in agony and pain

And nothing seems to soothe it or helps it go away

But I know I have to grin and bear it and focus on just trying to heal

I know this raw burnt feeling at least proves that I am real

And that if remain strong and true to myself

In time not being with you is better for my mental health

Because you burnt me so

And deep down I know

If you did that once who’s to say

You will not do that again.
