Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.


Behind these eyes,
are all your lies,
the times you took my heart and broke it in two.
The times I swore I was done with you.
Yet here we are.
You still won't listen.
You never did.

Behind these eyes,
are all those times.
The times you hated to be wrong,
so I proved you right.
The times you promised.
And I listened.
The times you told me you loved me.
The times you said I was the only one!

Behind those eyes is the mind to see,
That I never deserved this.
That I can do better.
Behind those eyes is the strength to leave you behind.
Behind those eyes no longer belongs to you.

I've been in a bad relationship before and we broke up this time of year and I always right something for it. I chose to share this one.
