Doses of You

This artificial hold,
has this mold already cracking.
piece by piece it's slowly shattering.
With me, this is such a familiar pattering.
As unreasonable as this may seem,
I want to ask you to just hold me.
Put your arms around me,
And let every bit of me,
come back to me.

You’ll Never Know

As long as you are smiling.
This sadness is something I'll just have to bear.
A bit of everyday my heart starts to tear.
As long as you are smiling, I'll keep smiling.
Pretending as if there was nothing there.
This loneliness is something familiar I'll learn how to wear.

Heartbreak Story

This is what we do.
We let our feelings decay
As we let time past us at bay.
We haven’t even seen each other for a mere second of the day.
And I’m starting to realize what you’ve already realized.
That, what we have,
Or rather what we had,
Was nothing but bad.
And now I’m seeing you smile,
As if you’ve felt nothing but glad.
