Breathless
Is how I feel
As the air leaves my lungs
And I am left standing there
A dumbfounded look on my face
As I try to understand
What has just happened

Heartless
Is how you appear
As you glance over at me
And you sigh
An annoyed look on you face
As you try to explain
How much you want me to leave

It doesn’t matter
If you speak the words or not
I know what you’re thinking
Because your face is like an open book
And I will always be able to tell
What you mean
When you forget to tell your friends my name
And don’t include me in anything

Alone
Is how I feel
As I watch you walk away
And I am left standing there
A confused expression on my face
As I try to understand what has just happened

Cold
Is how you appear
As you ignore my tears
And you sigh
A hard look on your face
As you try to explain
How much you want me to leave

It doesn’t matter
If I hardly even know you
Because your intent is clear
In the words you write
In the words you speak
And I will always be able to tell
When I am no longer needed here

Breathless
Is how I feel
As the air leaves my lungs
And I am left standing there
Gasping for air
Trying to breathe
An understanding look spreading across my face
As I finally realize
That I am not wanted
And that I will never be needed

Beautiful. Sadly enough, I can really relate to this, especially now. You described everything perfectly, I feel.
