I Hope It's A Lie

It's been a month without you,
But it's only killed me now.
And I've gotta say I hate it.
It's so hard not to pick up the phone and talk to you.
I don't know if I should erase you from my memory.
Sometimes it would be nice to forget,
But I don't want to delete the best part of me.

I know you don't need me.
I know you say you're doing just fine.
If only I could say the same.
Yet secretly, I hope it's all a lie.
I don't want you to be okay.
I want you to miss me enough to come back,
And start something good again.

You know, it hurts.
The feelings aren't mutual.
I write to forget about you,
To get out every emotion I have.
But all it does is remind me
That I may have lost you forever.
It doesn't matter that we had something good.
All you can see is everything bad.
I hope you listen to this
And realize what you've lost.
You know-

I know you don't need me.
I know you say you're doing just fine.
If only I could say the same.
Yet secretly, I hope it's all a lie.
I don't want you to be okay.
I want you to miss me enough to come back,
And start something good again.

I won't beg you to be mine again,
Though inside I want it.
Don't throw it all away because of one little thing.
None of this is easy,
It never will be.

I know you don't need me.
I know you say you're doing just fine.
If only I could say the same.
Yet secretly, I hope it's all a lie.
I don't want you to be okay.
I want you to miss me enough to come back,
And start something good again.

This was very good, lots of nice language and detail, though I thought that the rhythm was a bit off. Keep on writing!

Exactly. That's all I have to say. You basically just put all the thoughts and emotions in my head into words. And you did it very beautifully, I might add.

This is AMAZING!! I'm going through the exact same thing, and you describe it so perfectly. Everything that's been going through my head, but couldn't find the words for, is in this song.
