Me... Myself... and I....

How many times can my heart break before it cracks?
How many times can I cry, till I use up my tears?
What does it matter to you?
You have never cared, each time you ignore me,
You watch me shatter inside, and you,
You act like you don’t see
But I know that you see me,
See me give everything for you,
And you look away and I just can’t take it
I can’t stop thinking about each time that it happens
And the crack that forms on my heart
I cry and bleed inside, but no one can see
No one but me
I thought I knew who you were
But obviously I don’t anymore
I still love you, you’ve never really changed
The one who has changed is me,
What is wrong? Why don’t I see?
I’m all upset but I don’t know why
My worst nightmare is to be alone, with me myself and I
I’m obsessed… but does that really do anything
You still shine like the star that you are
I love you, for the diamond you really are, but
I struggle to be more than a piece of gravel.
You made me fall for you, head over heels, I couldn’t control myself
But you use that, adding fractures until I break.
I am counting these cracks, counting them until I break
I don’t want to lose myself to this new feeling
I don’t want to break
Because then…
Who Will I Be?
