Outlast

You make my heart beat way too hard,
I'm constantly out of breath,
Your perfect smile sets my soul alight,
But every goodbye's another death.

I think about you all the time,
I keep forgetting to breathe,
My dreams taunt me with what i can not have,
I think it's best I leave.

So i'll say goodbye just one last time,
I won't see you again,
I'll walk away and not look back,
If i can just outlast the pain.

I try not to hold onto this thought,
Maybe one day you'll think of me,
And realise as it's just too late,
We were meant to be.

So please forget and let me go,
I do hope that it's hard,
All i ask is one moment of hurt,
As I'm forever scarred.

So i'll say goodbye just one last time,
I won't see you again,
I'll walk away and not look back,
If i can just outlast the pain.

The End
