Favorite Quote:
“It is a dull sensation, your heart breaking, like the sound of a pebble dropping on the sand. Not a shattering, not a tearing apart, there is nothing shrill or grandiose about the sensation. It is merely an internal realization that something treasured you never knew you had is leaving forever.”


I've only been this sad for a while
Maybe a little longer than I recall
I started to lose track of time
After the night you let me fall.
The way your arms were open
But never close enough to catch me
I was always the cold-hearted one
But I trusted you, didn't you see?

You promised to take my hand.
And be here until the end.
But you let my memory fade
And assured a promise that wouldn't be made.
But don't you worry that crippled heart of yours
I'm not that same broken girl anymore.

You're just a silly boy
With a stone for a heart
I should have known your words
Were lies from the start.
I won't say I don't care
Because that would simply be a lie
But I won't be coming back
When you're the one to cry.
