Running Away Blues

I’m going to make myself hard to find.
I’m going to retreat from this town with just a worried mind.

I’m going to make myself deaf to your cries.
You keep making promises and I just spit out lies.

I’ve made so many mistakes.
Not least of these was each time I convinced you to stay.

I’ve inflicted coarseness and pain.
It’s not your fault; I’m the one to blame.

There are problems I cannot solve.
You keep needing sugar; I’ve got cupboards full of salt.

I admit that I am running away.
I can no longer recognize the beauty in your face,
So I’m giving up and running away.
