Why


those
ringing promises
empty words
scar me
with every remembrance
i cant
see your face
without pain
for if you
are happy
then i can learn to live
but you will never be mine
and you
are not happy
it hurts
to see you beautiful
smile
because
it will never
ever
be
for me
those empty promises
ringing words
shove a dagger
in my heart
with every
time i hear
the voice upon the wind
see your face in the dark
for i cannot escape
you
for my hope
for so long
was you
and the pieces
dont just move on
from you
for you
i love
i am dying
for you
i wish i could live
those empty promises
empty words
