Growing Up, Growing Apart

My eyes must be broken
Because they always leak
And when images of you pop in my mind
Springs trickle down my cheek

My heart must be malfunctioning
I don’t think I feel it beat
I feel hollow inside
Since you stopped talking to me

My defenses must have flaws
Because you got so close to me

I remember the times
Where it was just you and me
Together forever
We would sing

Than it became us three
You me…and him
I fell so deep
And you fell away

I had eyes for only him
I didn’t see you slip away

I thought you were happy for me
But I was wrong
You kept shutting me out
And pushed me away

You thought I didn’t need you
But you thought wrong
I need you
more than you know

Now I stand alone
Needing you more than ever

My walls crumble away
My defenses shot
I cant take much more
You were all I got

He may be the man I love
But you were suppose
To be my best friend
Or so I thought

Now I wonder….
What happened to us

For six years
We were each others
Always there when one
Needed the other

Look at us now
Yelling
Screaming
Crying

It wasn’t suppose to be like this
I never wanted it to end like this

I thought you said
Youd always be there
Id have you whenever
Forever

You promised
Not to leave me
Not to hurt me
But to help me

So where are you now
When I need you so bad?

Think back
To the time
When we held each other
And cried

When you thought I didn’t need you
Assumed I didn’t love you
Believed I had no use for you
Didn’t want you

And I told you
Ill need you forever

I told you not to worry
I may love him
With my whole heart
But

If, he were to leave me
My heart would break
But id always have you
To put it together

Now…I fear ive lost you
For good this time
So while my eyes leak
And my heart bleeds

When it hurts to think
And I struggle to sleep

I will keep my mouth shut
And leave you be

Even though I wish
I could scream
I could yell
To you
