Heartache Trouble

I was ready.
I was prepared to tell you everything,
And leave it in the moment clear as day.
But you messed up.
You took the opportunity away
and now you’ll never know.

The heartache comes and never leaves.
This isn’t something I can just dust off my sleeves.
I know it’s time for me to move on,
but the brain can’t always dictate the heart.
I knew that this was trouble from the start.

You could have warned me she was there.
You acted like I wouldn’t care.
Not one word spoken;
just one heart shattered.
The night I thought dreams would meet reality
was the night I found you don’t deserve a girl like me.

The heartache comes and never leaves.
This isn’t something I can just dust off my sleeves.
I know it’s time for me to move on,
but the brain can’t always dictate the heart.
I knew that this was trouble from the start.

Like a box left unopened,
so many questions left unanswered.
I’ll always be left with the wonder
and a foggy memory of you and me.
Love will never be forgotten.

You started this mess.
You lit the match and now
you’re blowing out the flame?
I have a feeling I’m the only one losing sleep;
The only one feeling pain.

The heartache comes and never leaves.
This isn’t something I can just dust off my sleeves.
I know it’s time for me to move on,
but the brain can’t always dictate the heart.
I knew that this was trouble from the start.

This shows real emotion and is very relatable. Just one thing I want to say is-and I'm not sure how accurate i can even be since I can't hear the rythme you're giving to it-that i think some of the lines you wrote are a bit long or short to fit if you understand what it is I'm saying. Other than that little distraction, it was good and expressive.

thank youu (:

I submitted this a while ago and when it got posted I read it again and noticed the same thing. When I sing it, though, some of the lines do naturally shorten. thanks again for the feedback (:

That is really deep... sad... but very good. People can easily relate to this and that is how good writers lure them in. So great job!
