Eyes full of sorrow and fear,
That is what I see when I look into your eyes.
I wonder what all has happened to you…
They say that you can tell a lot about someone by their eyes,
And I have found that this is very true by looking into yours.
I bet that your life hasn’t been very easy,
Well, neither has mine thanks to your “friend”.
IT seems like you are hiding more behind those eyes,
More sorrow, pain, and fear, then I know about.
I have tried and tried to figure it out,
But I have failed in doing so every time.
I wonder what all has happened to you…
I am sorry for the way that your “friend” has treated you,
I can’t believe that you are still friends.
If you truly like me,
You wouldn’t care about what he says.
But instead,
When you were asked a question,
You just answered “I don’t know”.
Sometimes I wonder what you really think of me,
I lay awake in bed at night and just think.
I wonder what life would be like if you loved me…
I have no way of knowing if you like me,
But after the other night,
I don’t think that you do.
I saw the way that you looked at her,
You never look at me like that.
I saw the way you smiled at her,
You will never smile for me.
I have been the brave one to try,
Now it’s your turn.
If you really like me,
Ignoring me for days is not going to make me like you.
I wish I knew how you felt…
If you lay awake thinking about me…
If you really like me for whom I am and don’t want me to change…
I wish I knew the answers,
But I don’t.
I tried to find out what you think of me,
But it failed.
And “I don’t know” doesn’t really mean anything,
Unless you really meant “I don’t care”.
I hope that you just meant “I don’t know”,
And that you are just too shy to tell.
I am giving up,
It’s your turn to show me if you like me now.
I hope you don’t like her…
I hope you like me…
I deserve you…
You are the band-aid to heal my many wounds,
The ones from you so-called “friend”…
Without you,
I am nothing.
I will bleed to death,
And give up all hope.
Please help me!!!
I will die without you…
