Crazy Jealousy

Staring at

Faded pictures

And forgotten memories I see the girl

I wanted to be

The girl standing there beside me

We were young
We were not yet

Subjected to the ways of the world

We were only best friends

As we grew up

Ahe grew a part from me

And I'm still fighting to hold on
To our yesterdays and

Broken promises

While she has moved on

With her life

Down a road that I wouldn't have minded taking too

Though she has forgotten me

Inside she still holds a piece of my heart for

She is a reminder of who I wish I were

Young and foolish

Playing games

She began toying with my mind

It was all
Unintentional but still

That hurt has left a scar across my life

And if she wereto


Hear this song

She'd have no idea who it was inspired by

All that she'd know

All that would matter is

That she could sing it better

As we grew up

She grew a part from me

And I'm still fighting to hold on

To our yesterdays and

Broken promises

While she has moved on

With her life

Down a road that I wouldn't have minded taking too

Though she has forgotten me

Inside she still holds a piece of my heart for

She is a reminder of who I wish I were

Oh do I really wish I were her?

Is she what I want to be?

Now I see


This jealousy

It has been eating away at me

For too long

Can I change that?

the years to come

I don't know if I am strong enough

To ever truly let her go

Whenever we were together I was

Always walking as her silent shadow

And I still think

Back to the days

Before she knew that she was any better

Any better than

Was she really any better than me at all?

I am tired

Of tiring out I

Am toying with my own mind now

She is her

And I am me

That is all we could ever be

And though the grass may seem greener on

Her side sometimes

My grass is any colour I want it to be

And I'll still love her

Our ties were bind-ed long ago

I hope she's listening to this song

I would want her to sing along

I am setting myself free

Free from my crazy jealousy

As we grew up

We grew a part

I'm comfortable with the way things are

Don't have to fight anymore
Our yesterdays and

Broken promises

Are forgiven and pure as gold

She has moved on

With her life

Down a road that was specially designed for her

While I get to go down my own

I don't truly think

She has forgotten me

She will always hold a

Place in my heart for

She is a reminder

Of how strong I have come to be and

No matter what may happen she

Will remain a part of me

Minus the jealousy.

This is absolutely AMAZING!!!!! The depth and emotion are described so well. Your phrases are fluid and melodic, it makes a very powerful song. I love how you put a matter that is so complicated into so few words, yet it did not come off as one-dimensional. Songs/poems like this go straight to the heart. You have a real talent, keep writing....forever!!!

Wow, thank you so much!  You have no idea how much it means to me to have someone say such sweet things about my writing, especially someone who is an exquisite writer herself.  Your comment makes me smile every time I read it, thank you :)
