Bittersweet - Poem by Emily Reid

One time we said
We'd love til done
One time we cried
It was all inside

We told ourselves
No more, No more
I guess what was said
A lie once more

You looked in space,
Not at me
I saw no tears,
I felt nothing

I sang my song,
You gave no reply
I looked and nothing
Was in your eyes

What have I done
What did I do
Can you not see
That I love you?

Don't think you can
Too much has passed
I thought you cared
Just knew you'd share

Your feelings all
In everything
But hidden there
No love was seen

If I could go way
Back to change
I could try
Yet never rearrange

The past or what
It's been til now
So appear I do
A fool somehow.
