Never Really There

You told me I could save you, You told me that you cared. You lied and said you loved me, When you were never really there. I see your fragile, guilty heart. You say you would never tear me apart. You want to care, and you’ll never leave. Though, you still continue to deceive. I watch you walking down the street. Never spoke a word that you were going to meet, That guy you loved from so long ago, You told me that you hated him though. A few minutes passed after you left, I knew where you were off to, so I took the time and wept. A few of the most helpless minutes of my life. You had me cowering in a corner where you stabbed me with a knife. I bleed and cry and die away. You come home, scream at me, and then you’re off again. If I get lucky, you’ll be a bit kind. Those are the days that he is left behind. You hold me and kiss me so tenderly. Make me feel prized and splendidly. I look in your eyes and I see a black hole, I don’t care, I love every inch of your soul. I knew one day that off you’d go, And leave me here in the darkness alone. I saw it all coming. Why didn’t I runaway? Now that you’re gone, there’s not much I can say. My hope is gone. My heart is wilted. I believe that my whole world has tilted. I’ll never be the same again. I believe this is my hearts true end.
