This Love Kills Us

Seeing the clouds form outside
The tears I am trying to hide
While I smile through the rain
And try to hide the pain

People see me laughing and joking
But inside my heart is broken
I want to change the hands of time
To the time we used to shine

What happened to those days?
When you used to hold me when I cried
Now I am alone
Inside my heart has died

I know it was my choice to leave
I wanted you to come with me
But you had different things going on in your life
So it was time I said goodbye.

My pride I can no longer sacrifice
I can no longer say what you need to hear
Because then I will be lying to myself
Every time you come near

I have to be honest with my heart
And let you know how I feel
And it is killing me to see you cry
In time I know you will heal

But I cannot continue this cycle
And not face what is in front of us
We both need space from each other
Now before this love kills us

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
