day four


Date: 04-01-2015

don't you see me

It's hard to pretend
to be someone i'm not 
despite knowing it's right
this freedom comes with a cost

It's hard to see you walk by
and act like i don't care
when all i want to do is
reach out and have you near

It's hard to see you go on
not needing me by your side
when all i'd ever wanted
was to see you smile

Because of me
because of us
because of something more than what you thought

Was i crazy to think that it would last forever?
perhaps love's greatest torture is the breaking dawn of never.

It's still hard for me to see you 
right there, so close 
and not be the one you hold
in your cold, distant heart.

The End
