- Forever Doesn't Last, Never Has An End
I close my eyes to disappear, to escape from my world & no longer feel. It doesn't work-not this way; it doesn't stop the feel of my pain. I open my eyes to an empty space. The rooms have been empty...
- I'm in No Mood to be Typical
I set my sites on something bigger, Something different than yesterday, I'm not too sure if it will pay off, But I hold my breath and jump anyway. No one else can do this for me, theres no use in waiting...
- How to Say I Love You-Without Saying a Word
Although words are certainly powerful-you can say wonders when you say nothing. In a relationship the first time you hear the words I love you, your heart melts and your knees become Jell-o. After...
- I will not lie to justify my life
What disappointment you must feel when you see me. I am sorry I have not become who you have expected me to be But I will not lie to justify my life. And I will not hide so you can avoid...
Because there are reasons why we love
Words that show no love and hide the way we feel
Better off without you-
You’re better off without me.
It’s so easy to say-
Not as easy to truly believe
Words that show no love-
They are hiding the real fear
The fear of what life is like,
When we forget how we should feel.
It happened over night.
Wait...no, that is a lie.
It took awhile to happen,
As we lived our lives trying to hide.
Stupid little fights-
Nothing too mature,
Makes everything in-between
become a chaotic blur.
Yesterday was simple-
Yesterday was kind.
Today life feels like it has left me far behind.
Wish I knew what to say-
or something I could do-
but I'm lost without words
when it comes to knowing what I should say to you.
Fight for your life-
Fight for our love-
Fight because you’re losing your grip,
On a life you once dreamed of.
You will tell me I am wrong,and say hurtful things.
I listen to the sound,
and become lost to reality.
Then you disappear and I watch you fade away
As all of the colors fade-I can feel my heart break.
Before I knew it-
My soul had disappeared.
And when I finally found it
It had lost what was real
So scared for you
Too scared for me-
For that this illusion of life
Has become a senseless reality
Wake Up-Wake Up.
It’s a dream you dream of.
I am right here-
I am still real
And I am still waiting for you to see how I feel.
Please see my pain & feel my bleeding heart.
Lately when I see you,
It takes me time to know who you are.
Please don't say you’re sorry-
or explain to me my faults.
I'm not trying to place anymore blame-
I'm trying to remember who we are.
I hate the way this is going
I hate the way I make you feel
I hate the way I feel when you tell me I am not real
Words we say to one another
When we try to get our points across
We are slowly killing each other.
And we are falling apart from a dream we once dreamed of
I won’t say I am sorry
I don’t want to misplace my blame
We can not have what we once had
Many days before yesterday
Why can’t we figure this out?
Why is it so hard to compromise?
Why when we try,
Do we lie to hide,
To avoid the truth of what we hide inside?
Can we work on getting through the fights and
Figure out how to move on?
Or are we stuck in bitterness,
That will soon result in broken hearts?
You can’t tell me, because you don’t know.
We really don’t know if we lose.
Even as angry as you tend to make me-
I still can’t help loving you.
Is love enough, I am sure it is not,
Because pain is still in control of each of us.
This isn’t me- this isn’t you,
And this is no longer the promise that we promised as the truth.
Keep on going-
Say no more?
What’s the best bet?
Who walks out the door?
I can’t tell- Is this hell?
All I know is it hurts to feel,
The feel of the hurt,
The feel of the lies
The ones we both speak to hide our disguise
Keep me forever,
No…..just let me go.
Change what you want-
Change what we are.
Better of without you,
You are better off without me?
So easy to say-
Not so easy to believe…
