"Love means holding on to someone just as hard as you can because if you don't, one blink and they might disappear... forever." -Ellen Hopkins, Impulse

I watch them get better everyday, they finally believe some of the words I’ve been trying to say

Yet I feel like I’m lost again in this darkness with no light I’m alone, I’m left with no hand to hold

Why was it that I was the one left behind once more, as if somehow my life has been closed off by a door

Your frowns have slid off your faces into smiles; I can see my glass cracking in the bathroom tiles

I try and try to cry and let these emotions out, but nothing leaks out only making me want to scream and shout.

Your happy and she’s happy, as I watch the color drain from my eyes, as I listen to your goodbyes.

Why is it that for some reason I believed that I could win this battle I fight? Will I be able to sleep through the night?

Because these goodbyes are just too much for me to take, I’m left in the dust watching you make footprints leaving me with heartbreak

Do you want me to tell you that I’ll be okay? Because I’m not going to be... I’m heartbroken… and this crap is not my price to pay
