I fell in love with you but you didn’t
So that was an opportunity we both lost.
You fell in love with someone,
I got hurt and bruised.
Eventually I moved on and so did you,
But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.
Soon after your new love moved on without you
And we lost touch,
I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing
For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.
Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again
You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.
Our story ends here
Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.
That still and keeps on loving
That keeps on hoping
Whose love was denied.
Cheers to the hearts that keep on mending
That continues to give joy that’s never ending.
The world is cruel sometimes
For here I am loving you
Yet there you are, loving her
Today, I broke down and cried
Did you see?
No one saw
No one heard
I kept it a secret
Strong people break too, you know
Did you know?
We’re fragile like china
Strong people break
We also have a limit
And I reached mine today
I hardly smile for fear that the cracks will show
I pretend to laugh to hide what is disfigured inside
I look strong so as not to reveal I’m breaking
But I am
I’m tearing apart on the inside
And the cracks?
Are showing ever slowly
Some hearts are full
Some have lost almost all
Some hearts ache
Some hearts break
Some hearts want to no longer feel
Other hearts hurt but then learn to heal
Hearts can bend, break and fall
But hearts can also forgive and under the sun, stand tall
I couldn’t love you for it would be a lie
I couldn’t let you wait on me or let you say you’d rather die
Than be alone and without me.
For what you felt for me was never love, not at all
It was infatuation and wanting, no, not love at all.
To hold your breath if I told you to
That would have been too much power I’d hold over you.
You were wrong for me for I never wanted or liked you
And I truly am sorry for I could never learn to love you.
They say I’m lonely because I am alone
They say I haven’t tried falling in love just because I have no significant other
They say I haven’t truly had my heart broken because I’m single.
But don’t they know I’m at my happiest when I am alone?
Don’t they know that I’ve fallen one too many times for the wrong person?
And don’t they know that single people has had their hearts broken more often?
The way he looks
The way he walks
Chuckles and talks
All the same.
They are all the same too.
Somethings never change
But not me, not anymore.
Cold, cold night
As cold as ice
As cold as his heart
As cold as my soul
As cold as the glare in our eyes
How and why did we come to this?
We’ve become frozen
We’ve become our coldest
