Always looking for someone to blame
You say that you’re the one in pain
But you never recognize the hurt you cause
Only focusing on what you’ve lost

Although I found that the rumors were true
I couldn’t bring myself to stop believing in you
You forced me to hear it from everyone else
Then get mad you couldn’t tell me yourself

I gave you my trust after no time at all
The last thing I wanted was to see you fall
Holding back my opinion was no easy task
You made it so easy to see through your mask

Everyone’s convinced you’ve got control
But sooner or later you’ll feel the toll
Of fighting the real you buried inside
You’ve put him backseat just along for the ride

I wish you could see what I see
All that you are and all you can be
There’s more to you than you allow others to know
You’re holding back greatness it’s okay to show

wow... I'm speechless. Are you stalking me??! :) This is how I feel with a lot of people. It's like I feel their emotions and see them very easily- this poem is like something I've tried to tell one of my friends and he ignores me, the other one I never tell because he can read it in my face and voice. Awesome, and I love the words/rhyming.
