tell me what you were thinking.
i want to know what ran through your mind.
as you packed all your bags and left me behind.
you left without even the simplest form of sentiment.
you had the best of me.
now i feel like nothing more than the protagonist in a tragedy.
a screenplay consisting of empty words.
you are nothing but a liar.
i write this with you in mind.
i wonder what you were so afraid of.
i wonder why you would abandon love.
the acts of a traitor.
i wish i could rid myself completely of you.
don't you know that i would have never left you behind.
this is the thanks i get, for always keeping you locked in my mind.
falling for every word that you spoke.
sinking like a ship into a sea of falsified hopes.
if i had known, i would have packed my bags.
and left you long before you left me.
now i lie in this bed, writing letters never to be sent.
releasing my mind from this torture and torment.
i can't let this keep wearing on my heart.
i'll give anything to escape this place.
as i finish writing this letter, i turn in my bed.
Sleeping with a ghost.
How could you let go?
it's been said,"to give is better than to receive."
i've given my all to you.
i set myself up to receive nothing but failure in return.
why can't i just rid you from my mind?
you were the one who left me behind and let this burn.
i just wonder what crossed your mind as you crossed that line.
i wish i didn't care about you.
