why not me

it hurts me so much
to see the way you look at her.
so obviously in love
feelings get more insecure.
it doesn't add up
at least not in my head
how she interests you more
this just goes unsaid
i may be too much
come on a bit too strong
but i always mean well
you just take it so wrong
my chance is now gone
but how dumb are you
to pass up a girl
who would always remain true
my dreams are now nightmares
because it shows me
everything that could of happened
you and i turned to we
just a blur in the past
in a wink of an eye
you fall out of my life
without saying goodbye.
