"What, do you really think I was
strong enough to handle it?
If you did, then sweetie, you
don't know me at all.
These "smiles" are fake.
Just another lie people bought.
You will never know the disaster
that's behind them." -Anonymous


I can’t do this anymore;
Walking past each other
Wearing our blank faces
Like we’ve always been strangers.
Is this how things are supposed to be?
What happened to the love,
The passion, the happiness?
I’m not Cinderella or Snow White,
Where I can pretend.
I live life.
This is reality.
No happy ending.
No prince charming.
No perfect life.
Though this is life,
You are my reality.
Hoping you’ll realize that
Keeps me going.
I’ll fight
Till I have no energy left.
Maybe one day
We can discover that passion
Again.

I wish I could get the love of my life back. I walk past him every day like we've always been strangers.
