Strong Like You...

My heart lies broken, battered and bruised, it barely pumps at all...
you are so strong, you falter none, I've never seen you fall,

My stomach is twisted and tied and knots, tears they fall like rain...
yet you stand smiling embracing life, you never feel the pain,

My fight is gone, my body aches as I crumple to the floor...
no second thoughts you pass me by and walk right out the door,

I have no shoulder to cry upon, an ear no one can lend...
there is no entity you can't charm, everyone's your friend,

I envy you, I truly do, to feel no fear or ache...
I foolishly gave love one last try, only for loves sake,

for all this tattered hearts been through, you think it would be tougher...
my loves instincts were never right, loves only made me suffer.

I wish that I were strong like you, to never waiver or fall...
I wish that I were strong like you and never loved at all.
