You Pretend

For every breath I take, you kill me more.
Our fire so fake, what do I wait for?
I've had it up to here, I don't want you.
Wipe away the fallen tear, for our time's through.
You walked away, you left me.
I got lost in the fray, yet now I see.
I'm no longer the same, not the man I was before.
I've took your shame, but now you're a bore.
I could be weak, just like you.
Now I can speak, what words are true.
I could have done anything, for your fragile heart.
Now it's hate I bring, for you tore me apart.
All these feelings I get, when I see your face.
Now I have the wit, to let memories erase.
Why do I, take this abuse?
For you I die, bending for your misuse.
I hate, you pretend.
Asphyxiate, for this is the end.
When I come home, just leave me alone.
My heart's left to room, heartache has been shown.
I know you don't care, as you hear my laughter.
I've took all I could bear, you're not worth chasing after.
I'll lead you on, to believe love's true.
I'll be gone, when sorrow's caught you.
Trust me, until I let you down.
You finally see, as I let you drown.
Never before, have I done such.
Yet I feel sore, at the hint of your touch.
It's now or never, so just leave.
You said we'll love forever, yet I don't believe.
As I laugh at your cries, I leave you behind.
As sorrow dies, it's now you it'll find.
Are you learning, or is it for love you're yearning?
