You always seem so real
Lying flat on a photograph
And I think I liked you better that way
And I’ve already melted
Down to me,
You’re looking down on me.
But this will be the last time.
Though it was already a next time,
To the last time.
I’m sorry I cared.
I’m sorry I dared
And I’m sorry I shared
With you, every sweet piece of myself
For now, as bitter as I taste,
You will not take me back
You will not take one more look
At something I thought you lost
But something of which
You let go.
Almost all too easily.
When you said goodbye,
And pretended to cry
Just as you buried your head in your hands
In an effort to hide
But I knew very well
Those tears you cried in vain
Cried in shame, and didn’t say a word
To redeem yourself.
And you couldn’t utter a single phrase
To apologize for never being there.
For breaking every promise you owed me.
But to this day, you can’t look me in the eyes
And honestly say, you never thought about it.
Never thought about the way you left.
Lying your way through, just so you wouldn’t have to…
Because you shouldn’t have to…
No…you shouldn’t ever have to cry
For the people you love.
For the times when you chose to be
You held my heart, fragile and cold,
And cursed with oblivion,
You washed your hands of the matter,
You walked away from me…
You walked away from us all,
And in the end, nothing has changed…
Head over heals in love….
And if I dare open my eyes…
For as long as it takes to realize
That this was never right.
