Felt but Forgotten

Willing to pay the most tragic of prices I just want to feel something soon Using her beauty for only the worst of vices Knows what she’s doing too Can’t stop the hate that follows temptation You’re all I want but can never see Walking around with the worst reputation Never-ending buzzing, but I have yet to see a bee No amount of drinks will ever swivel the image The thoughts I know finding you again I’m done with this agony, so start the scrimmage Please help me find the end of my adrenaline Pulling me endlessly, stretching me thin I’m trying so hard to show you what you fail to see Your refusal, I swear, is the only true sin It can’t be wrong but we’ll never know, will we Dreading the smell of dead romances You only sense the prayer Ashes, ashes burning all of our chances It’ll be your own fault when we’re both gasping for air Are you only using me once again? I have been dealt no hand, I should fold But I’m dreading that day this comes to an end So I’ll pretend to hold the world while your eyes only get cold Maybe... one day we could be the fine line One between lust and hate No love in sight, but I’d get to call you mine And maybe one day I’ll accept that fate For the wind will forever whisper our fear Even when no amount of screaming will bring up what I long to say And if, or when the world forgets we were ever here I will still love you anyway Six feet in the ground and all I will see Is the sparkle in your eyes that I wish was towards me But of course, you won’t notice at all I should have known you would never actually fall
