I Tried So Hard
I tried so hard.
I tried my best.
I gave you my all,
and now there's nothing left.
You stole my heart,
then tore it in two.
Now I'm falling apart,
and don't know what to do.
Divided by decisions,
burned by the fire.
Confused by your words.
Tempted by desire.
I'm living in the present.
My mind is on the past.
Not knowing what I'll lose.
Not knowing what will last.
Blinded by fear.
Drowning in doubt.
Struggling to be free.
Looking for a way out.
Is It Worth The Pain?
Saying you loved me, with that look in your eye,
I wish I could say, it was a cold hearted lie,
I know that you love me, I know that you care,
But the rage inside you, slowly flared.
I admit I've made mistakes, overstepping the boundaries,
Which made me look fake,
I always said I would never do the things I did,
And I know that's why it so hard for you to forgive.
So many times, we've said that we'd try,
Just to turn around, and make each other cry.
Remember how it was, when we first started out?
We fell so hard, maybe fell in love too soon,
At one point you'd notice, ONLY me in the room.
We both did things we can't undo,
Now it seems our relationship is headed for doom,
And not that long ago, I was EVERYTHING to you,
Now your looking for other things to "do"
I admit my mistakes, but can you admit yours?
I have paid for what I have done, as you've paid for yours.
So why is it like this? Why can't we even talk?
You call me names and act like you don't care,
All the while, our love for each other is still there.
I never meant to hurt you, or cause you any pain,
I know neither of us want to go through this same old thing again.
I owe you so much, and I have so much to prove to you
But you continue to do things you wouldn't want me to do
We always have these tears to cry,
And are left with all these wondering questions of why?
Why can't we get past the past? You think I expect to much to fast,
But don't you want to become whole at last?
Why won't you at least try to believe me, instead of pushing me further away?
I have these emotions, I wish you could see,
Sometimes I get really upset, cause I feel you don't understand me
Will you ever love me like you USED to? Show me the love that I ONCE knew?
The love that from, we Both grew,
When will you see? I'm starting to feel like I hardly know you anymore?
When can we go back to how it was before?
Will we still hurt if we heal? Or by that time, will we still feel?
My dreams of US does not look like it's coming true,
All I feel is sad and blue,
And I know you're looking for other things to "do",
You're sick of me, and want something new.
Heartbroken And Confused
My heart feels like it’s torn in two,
Why can't I just be with you?
Everyday another tear,
Everyday a lot more fear.
I want to hold you in my arms,
I want to keep you safe from harm.
I act like things are all okay,
But I really want to run away.
I act like things are all alright,
But always end up in a fight.
I cry more tears than I can count;
Why won't they just let me out?
I tell myself these things won't stay,
But I don't think they'll go away.
may he rest in peace.
You broke my heart
And won't repair it
You took my love
and won't give it back
You made me feel
and never did
You made me have hope
and you gave up
My heart is broken
You gave me good times
You gave me bad times
You let me fall for you
You let me fall in love
And you let go of me
And you let me have my heart-broken
he is the kind of breeze that turns into a storm, and when he takes your hand and runs, time stops, you could whisper his name and it would echo through the rest of the universe, and when your hands touch, it all collapses.
Fear: The Emotion of Death
You can't see me,
But I'm there.
I'm in your tears,
I stalk you in your shadow,
So stealthy and no slack.
I'm made of dark matter,
You better watch your back.
You can hear me,
I'm your beating heart.
Inside is emptiness,
Tearing you apart.
You shiver and shake,
At the sound of my name.
I engulf you, drown you,
Surround you with shame.
I've seen destruction,
More than anyone.
I'm darker than,
The world with no sun.
The agony arises,
There's so much red.
Most of it coming,
From the dead.
I become your shadow,
I'm a terrible sight.
And when you see me,
You're frozen with fright.
I'll grab you by your neck,
You'll be thrashing around.
You're crying, shrieking,
Until there's no sound.
I feel so sad,
So empty, so. . .
So you'll feel the same,
You'll be on your own.
And as long as you are with me,
At the point of no return.
You will go crazy.
You'll crash and burn.
Then you understand,
With your slowing of breath.
That I am Fear,
The Emotion of Death.
