Favorite Quote:
"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us." Pride and Prejudice


Whenever you came near,
The wings of my heart wildly fluttered,
Making everything clear;
There was something I never muttered.

Whenever my gaze fell upon your frame,
And you revealed your smile to another,
I hung my head in shame;
My body began to shudder.

That is when I came to the realization,
This was the end of my suffering.
I was just another complication;
Nothing.

Whenever your melodic voice,
Penetrated my ears with its warming tone,
I knew I had a choice;
To stay or leave my comfort zone.

Whenever my tears rang out through your phone,
You had sent comfort to me,
With not even a groan;
It was then I wished for you to see.

But how could you?
Blinded by a foolish eye,
You know not what is true,
But what is told with a sigh.

Beneath the teases laced with sarcasm,
My heart lay tucked away,
Until another will make it spasm;
For there will never be a day;
That I will ever say,
It was you.
It has always been.
The words "I love you,"
Could have been.
But they won't ever be,
For you will never see me.
