I am hurt I am shaken, I feel so mistaken.
You left me in the dust and took with you all my trust.
I feel abandoned; I can barely stand it. The thought of us brings me to tears, never did I think I could feel this way, not in a million years.
I like to think that you feel this way too, but obviously your tears because of us are few.
I hate seeing you with someone else! You should be with me, don’t you see?
When I do see you, I get confused, I don’t know why but I just feel used.
I’m sorry I don’t know what else to say, I really wish it wasn’t this way.
I would like to express to you the way I feel and hope you know it is real.
I’m scared though; I really don’t want you to go!
I don’t want to hurt anymore; the pain goes from my heart to my core.
I’m sorry if I was wrong, I’m sorry if for you I wasn’t strong.
But I know that I will always cherish our past and will always wish that it did last.
Now I guess to that thought I need to say goodbye, no matter how much it hurts and I wonder why.
I’m sorry if I make you sad, I’ll be happy for you and am not mad.
I had to get this off my chest, though, my feelings I needed to show.
Now I guess I have to go..
