Him...But It's Not His Fault


I want to lay in bed and cry
Until there's nothing left inside.

Why does it all come back?
Why can't I cry it all away?

Why does this well never dry?
Do these tears need me as I hate them?

Why can't I simply just move on?
You shrug me off until I'm gone.

I'll always wonder deep inside,
Did you know about the tears I cried?

The emotions won't stay gone for long,
When they return, they'll be just as strong.

I just wish my heart were frozen,
Then I might not feel so broken.

    That's strong, I really feel it. I'm interpreting this in a different way than intended I think but either way, well done. (Report) Reply
