Don’t Say My Name

A couple steps away from you,
That’s all I took,
I could go no further,
Before you called out my name,
And surely it made me stop right there;
I couldn’t take one more step.
Your voice resonated inside me,
Echoed and stayed;
It felt like morning again.
I tried to run away,
But you caught me just as easily,
Just like you did then.
How can I go places,
When you always call me back,
Right where we started?
Never going anywhere,
The same things over and over again.
Where do we go?
We’re stuck here right where we were,
Making it difficult for you and I.
What do we do now?
I threw away my heart when you declined,
It’s gone now.
