disbelief 'n' silence

It all started with the crisp green leaves Transforming into all that gorgeous fall foliage With the warm breeze, came The blooms of sakura Spring for sale Then came the sudden rainstorms Summertime sadness And the thunderstorms Lightenin Burnin everything down The final blow Just all that’s leftover for takeout is Disbelief ‘n’ silence Tears burnin my skin In fits of anger ‘n’ despair Goin back is no option The unspoken questions With the silent answers Words and voice Hauntin me Did the heart have to break thrice For you to come flyin back to me After many many moons Now I’m reminded how I Gave all the f***s I had to give Gave all the chances I had to give Lockin the door behind me Keepin to myself Make no mistake Me forever Hauntin your thoughts Durin the sleepless nights Alongside the regrets Of you leavin me Doesn’t it hurt so bad? Doesn’t it hurt so good? At least I had the last laugh I speak into The silence of my own bedroom Hopefully you can love yourself enough To love someone else again
