past rewound.

You brought sunshine when
it was dark for a while,
why did you now
stop making me smile

You helped me figure
a part of me for me to find
why did you let me then
lose yourself in my mind

you put a balm the other day
on my bruised knee
why did you ignore then
the pain that you cannot see

I gave you the power to hurt me
while giving you my every bit
why did you assume that
i needed you to use it

you said you'd be there
thinking back I looked around
why is it that all I saw was
shadows of a past rewound
