You Say You Love Me & Yet You Also Love Her..
You say you love me, 15/4/2010
& yet you say you love her.
Am I supposed to know what you want me to be?
but I know you're not a cheater.
The things we share between us,
& the things she does for you,
it's like i may as well have been hit by a bus,
because she does everything you want her to do.
Sometimes I wonder why I even bother,
I just get treated badly,
& yet I'm not filled with anger
when I should be, sadly.
I love you & only you
You know what you mean to me,
& yet I am ...
I sit in this room,
As though everything is gloom.
I listen to what others say,
As things fade away.
I think of you dearly,
As things turn deeply.
I believe that I can be true,
Everyday that I miss you.
