You

I gave you my heart,
And you tore it apart,
Just threw it away–
Didn’t keep it a day.

Made me feel like I’m never enough,
And just told me to get over it and stay tough;
But I’m not as strong as you think,
And my armor can’t survive another chink.

You bring me down to my knees,
And you just go on living however you please;
You don’t care how many tears I cry,
Don’t even bother staying until they dry.

All I wanted was a little respect,
And you crushed my hopes and dreams like an insect;
All I wanted was for you to be there,
And it took me too long to realized you’d never care.

I gave you my heart,
And you tore it apart,
Just threw it away–
Didn’t keep it a day.

The world blurs.

Racing thoughts build upon one another
Building upon one another and the burden unbearable
So unbearable a burden that the thoughts
