"be the change you wish to see in the world"


I close my eyes,
I hear your voice
I’m able to hear it
Over any noise.
It screams in the silence
Oh so loud
It haunts me when I’m out and about.

I close my eyes
And I see yours
The brown that makes me
Oh so sore.
They bore through me
And they tell me lies
Why did I think I saw truth in those eyes?

I close my eyes
I see your smile
It’s smiling at me
And it’s laughing because of me.
It haunts my thoughts
Oh so taunting
It makes me love you even more.

I close my eyes
I see your face
You’re sweet, sweet face
That I extremely hate.
But if I hate it,
I oh so hate it,
Then why do I love to see it next to me?

I close my eyes
And beg to God
That he will either make you see me
The way I see you
Or help me get over
This pain you always put me through.
I love you but I seriously don’t want to.

The author's comments:
I love writing what I go through, and this is something I went through with a boy I liked for 3 years but nothing ever happened. All it left me with was hurt, and I don't like him anymore. We're not even friends because of things that happened this past year. I look back now and realize all of the other boys I've missed, wasting time on him. If you're going through this, it gets better. Even though it's bad now, and you go downhill for awhile before it gets better, it eventually does.
