Incorrigible Child

Why have you left me?
Life has become bliss less.
I've pulled too far, dragging my disposition behind,
Hiding it, for no one to find.
This feeling of solitude has driven me ill.
I'm down on the ground, with no one around.
Please, can you help me get rid of this feeling?
Never mind, there's no chance of me healing.
Yeah, maybe I bruised your heart.
But you, you've made me fall apart.

I'm just an incorrigible child,
Something like a lunatic gone wild.

Oh, how beautiful you are,
Once my chances are too far.
It won't be me staring at you down the aisle,
I'll be high, sitting on my tile
In my bathroom and bawling.
With all residue falling.
Let me make amends
For all of my bad trends.

Struggling in the sand, I long for your hand,
Even your touch. But you, you don't think of me much.
Illuminate the good inside of me.
Within these trenches there is two torn benches
In which my fist clenches. But I crushed the wrong one.

I was still debating,
When you stopped waiting.
Now you've shut me out
Expectedly, without a doubt.
This was so devastating.
It's all my fault,
You could have been mine too.
Now my hearts turned solid blue.

Miserably, I miss your sound.
I used to find comfort in you,
But now you're nowhere to be found.
Can't you hear my voice of despair?
I know, I know, I'm not exceedingly fair.

I'm just an incorrigible child,
With happiness never more than mild.

In waiting bells, I would have looked the same...
What you think will never be changed.
Well, it's not your mind that is deranged.
You repeatedly say there's another way,
But everything we had has been wiped away!
Until this day, neither of us wanted it to end up this way.
My vision is beginning to go black.
It's too late, I've already lost.
There's no turning back.
We'll never be the same.
There is only me to blame.
Now I'll leave this world in shame,
Knowing no one will remember my name,
But you.

The author's comments:
I had a bestfriend once. I told her everything! She loved me, and i loved her. i was just too stupid and immature at the time to see that when i told her "i love you" i really meant it. by the time i figure this out she has a boyfriend. so i keep my feelings to myself. Its too late. one thing led to another and before i knew it our friendship was ruined.
