I can walk away

I can say I don’t need you
I can walk away
I can only look ahead
I can say I’ll forget you
I can write new chapters
I can forge ahead
but I can’t erase my memories
the ones that spin
just before dreams
no I can’t stop the tears
the ones that fall
just before I laugh
I won’t ever whisper
stay with me forever
into the silent darkness
I will only pretend
finding comfort in emptiness
fooling everyone with smiles
