Sitting On The Sidewalk

By
More by this author
Sitting on the sidewalk,
Waiting for the bus.
Everything looks different
From down here.
The light from the lampposts
Makes the dew on the grass shine.
The sun is barely coming up,
But everything is dark.
This is the way my life is right now.
I bring the sun up,
Show a fake smile to hide the hurt.
My life is dark,
But I want to hide it with a smile.
I don't want anyone to know I'm hurting,
I don't want to have to explain everything.
Like the light from the lampposts,
I have a little burning light in my heart.
Just enough to get me up every day,
Keep me going.
It hurts to see him with her,
I wish his arm was around me...
I wonder what it would be like for him to hold me,
That smell of Abercrombie cologne,
Not too strong,
But strong enough to know you’re close to me.
Everyone asks me if something is wrong,
I just say "No, I'm just tired"
Just to hide all the pain...
I wish you would have asked me to homecoming...
I wanted to ask you,
But I had only known you for a few weeks.
You make it so hard to know if you like me.
You'll flirt for a day,
Then ignore me.
You’re a player too,
I don't know if you would ever be loyal.
You’re always around another girl,
Flirting with another girl,
Every though you have a girlfriend.
She seems nice,
I have never talked to her,
I have just seen her with your arm around her.
It's so hard to walk by you and stay strong,
I just want to tell you how I feel,
Even if your girlfriend is right there,
I just wish I could tell you how I feel.
I hope you enjoy homecoming with her...
You better hope you guys don't break up,
I won't be there for support.
You can get through it yourself,
Like I have to go through all of this by myself.
