'Why Don'T You Understand? ' The Spoken Stalker

I'm aware that you despise me,
And yet I dont know why,
Is it because I'm ugly,
Or because your shy,
I cant find words,
To express myself,
My feelings are there,
Upon the shelf,
I cant say I love you,
and I doubt I ever will,
You'll never say you love me too,
You dont know how it makes me feel,
Those words rip me apart,
Like breaking through a window,
I watch from afar,
Why do you make me sink so low,
If I were to die,
Just waste away,
Would you cry,
Or let my memory fade,
I'm lost without you,
Will I ever find love,
I think your lost too,
Theres so much your thinking of,
But is any of your love,
Is any of it true,
Even when I'm dead and gone,
In my head I'll think of you,
