You just don't see what's truly deep inside of me.
I lacked patience yes but so did you.
I say that not of scorn,
but from a shattered heart that can never reform.
I never lied about my love.
You won't believe that though
so I must wear my self loathing self hatred shame just like a glove.
I've made mistakes and quite a few.
I'm just a babbling fool who's failed at all but much worse you.
Still though you must see where you've hurt me too.
Not all injuries caused or mistakes made were mine and caused this pain.
I'm a liar?
Well if you must then tell yourself it's so.
But I know different the universe cannot contain all of the love for which I hold.
I had so much love for all once but the world killed it hard and cold.
You were my light my hope,
the last refuge for a lost and dying soul.
Yet I'm so evil all around as you can see.
I'm just not worth the time and understanding it takes and needs.
I'm not a liar I love you so.
You'll be my last thoughts my love for you as my life fades and slowly goes.
There's no place for me here I cannot lie.
I love you Kira and of this life I'm so sick and tired.
So I say now with flowing tears.
I did not lie I just needed you right here.
