    I'm not happy,

    Our life together melted away
    You arrived later each day
    Kept thoughts inside
    Once happily shared
    Didn't notice my presence
    As if I wasn't there
    How did you decide
    I was part of your past
    No matter what I tried
    You knew it wouldn't last
    Was it a single decision
    You pondered one night
    Or did it happen slowly
    As I continued to fight
    To save what we once had
    And could've had again
    If only you remembered
    I was once your best friend

    I could've been nicer, sweeter & more romantic

    I could've stopped being ill, loud & sore

    But I never

    In a million years, could've loved you more

    If anyone knew
    Except us two
    How you've behaved
    What would you do
    Would you be ashamed
    Looking eye to eye
    With people you call friends
    You try to hide
    Things you've done
    Made me die inside
    Now you laugh
    Leaving me to cry
    I don't dare tell
    What you've done
    My loves too strong
    My heart too numb

    Sparkle and Dance

    Her eyes, captivating & beautiful
    Not only from the colors
    But a tenderness from within
    With the blink of eye,
    I'm in a trance
    Watching them sparkle and dance
    I'd miss a thousand sunsets
    Walk the earth to it's end
    To have a chance
    Once again
    To see them sparkle
    And watch them dance

    Once again she crosses my mind
    Like a phantom crossing a dark alleyway
    She appears when I'm nearly at peace
    Tormenting me from years gone by
    Never letting me forget my mistake
    Always there in the back of my mind
    Waiting, hoping for a moments solace
    That's when she emerges
    From the depths of my memory
    Reminding me of the choices I've made
    Of the life we should have today
    Instead I'm alone, living with the ghost
    Of the one I let slip away

    How did you expect me to survive
    No one can live without a heart.

    If someone has chosen you to love,
    They can always change their mind.

    Years pass
    Things change
    We find love

    But we waste it

    And we never realize
    Until it's to late
    To change it

    Only the lonely
    Know the pain
    Of being alone
    & feeling ashamed
