Shutting You out

Shutting You out

I'm shutting you out
For I can't keep you in
A festering sore
An unforgivable sin

I'm shutting you out
My heart is locked tight
Blackened by lies
Unmentionable fright

I've shut you out
I won't let you back in
Bothering me more
Getting under my skin
This festering sore
This unforgivable sin
Won't happen again
For I...
I won't let you back in

Nothing like both barrels from the hip, a straight-shooter with powerful diction and delivery. Bravo!! Peace and Light, dah
