    who do you talk to when the person you always there for, and is the only one that ever listens, becomes the reason your falling apart...

    Failure

    She failed...

    I know I know... its sounds so sad, but you have to understand it's the truth...

    She failed...

    Now... dont misinterpret what I'm trying to say, I really dont mean it in a bad way, but it's the truth...

    She failed...

    She failed to notice the beauty that she had... the aura and glow that lit up any room she stepped in...

    She failed to notice how all her small actions... her laugh, her smile, her look... those small gestures, just seemed to capture everything special about her... seemed to keep me enthralled in her grace...

    She failed to notice how all those small insecurities she had... made her seem even more amazing... how all those imperfections where what made her so perfect...

    See she failed to notice...
    She failed to notice the beauty within her and the love she had in front of her...

    See she failed....

    But she never failed to steal my heart...

    To the one I'll never have...

    You asked me why...
    Why out of all the billions of people in the world, I chose you.
    You asked me... what I saw in you...

    Now I know I could have simply done the cliche...
    Describing how your beauty never ceased to amaze me...
    How your smile was able to make my heart skip a beat...
    How the sight of you entering the room seemed to brighten up my day...

    But... although that is all true... it wasn't what I saw...

    See I saw the sadness in your eyes contradicting the happiness of your smile...
    I saw the worry and burden you had, clearly exposed by the shadow that carried it behind you...
    I saw how the thoughts of others seemed to matter so deeply to you...
    How your appearance and actions around others always seemed so well rehearsed...

    See... I saw all the flaws and insecurities you tried to hide behind that beautiful smile...
    Not knowing how perfect they really are..

    See to me, you're beautiful in every angle...

    But I guess its just how I'll forever see you...
    As I constantly try and run away from these feelings...

    After all... we're just friends right...?

    A 3rd's Perspective

    Hi... I'm 3rd, surname Perspective.

    I am simply defined as not being part of the story, for I am the one telling it...
    I see all and know, it's simply how it works...

    Wow... that sounds weird, "I"...
    For he, she or them are all I know, the letter "I" is simply a stranger upon the tongue...
    A visitor that simply can not and will not stay.
    But isn't that the role of a storyteller...

    Bringing life to fiction...
    Creating ambitions...
    Lighting the spark missing...
    Consoling those who suffer...
    Instill fear...
    Teaching one a lesson...

    See, no one knows who I am... For I have too many identities...

    I am the shadow that you neglect and never remember...
    The butterfly you think beautiful, yet so insignificant...
    The leaves with no will of their own, swept by the wind...

    See no one knows who the storyteller is...
    No seems to care or remember that he too exists...
    As a storyteller, my life is and will forever be unknown...
    No one knows my name...

    So hi... I'm 3rd, surname Perspective...
    I am the storyteller...

    "Oh... whats that??"
    "You want to know my real name?"

    You wouldn't remember it even if I told you...

    Reality

    I'm tired of living in this fantasy,
    only seeing you in my dreams.

    Why cant I have you,
    I just want it to be real...

    Disappear

    "I dont know!!!"

    Yet the tears didnt stop flowing,
    the feeling of being worthless,
    the never ending sadness....

    "Be strong, it's okay" they said.

    Really? How is it okay?
    why then does it feel so empty inside,
    why does everything I touch fall apart...

    "Is this depression??"

    The constant pain...
    The constant tears...
    Feeling hopeless, lonely...
    Forever in my thoughts...

    "Why do you care!?"

    Maybe I should've not been...
    Maybe I shouldn't exist...
    Does it matter anyway...

    "No one would notice even if I disappeared"

    Déjà Vu

    See... I found myself reading our old messages... listening to those sweet enticing love stories you used to tell...

    But I guess that's what they just were... stories, things filled with fiction, fantasies, myths...
    Things meant to keep one enthralled, captured, kept in place...

    Huh... at the time I believed every bit... to me these weren't imaginary... the feelings, the love, the time... see I guess I was too deep into the story...

    Bang!! And without me realizing it, the story came to an abrupt end...
    The dreams, the love, the fantasies...
    my soul, my heart...

    Wrenched by the very same hands that once touched me with gentle care...the same hands that once held mine...
    Never to return...
