He Lied... and She Believed
I know I have a heart because I feel it breaking.
I've written this poem to remember that once upon a time, I've known a beautiful young girl with a broken smile. Nobody knows why she cries or even why she has those scars upon her wrist.
s [HE] be [LIE] ve [D]
She used to dream of a true love and found it on him. Then one day, destiny greedily changed its mind.
I've been there for her, through her painful battle of saving her shattered heart; picking up all the pieces and finding a way to make it whole again.
And everytime I asked her "How are you?"
She will just laugh, then smile to hide the pain and say, "I'm alright, it only hurts when I breathe."
It's funny how fake a smile can be... and no one would notice the pain that lies beneath it all.
I’m tired to love him
He just let me bleed to death
Silence speaks it all.
I’m tired to fake a smile
A laugh and a cry
For I’m no longer me.
I am no one
A meaningless form of memory
Cradled on the dark.
I’d like to stay as a secret
I’m tired to be seen
He’ll just hurt me again.
I’m tired of his promises
Broken dreams and lies
Void of color.
I’m tired to be hurt
Tears that are endless
Pains that overflow.
I am unloved
In silence I fought it all
No one really knew it.
I’m tired to be visible.
"Sometimes I wish that I had never met you, so I could go to sleep at night not knowing there was someone like you out there."
"There are some hurts that you never completely get over. And you think that time will diminish their presence and to a degree it does, but it still hurts because well, hurt hurts. And as we grow older, it becomes difficult to just believe. It's not that we don't want to, but too much has happened that we just can't."
