I don’t need to see you
to know that you’re around
I don’t need your help
to get up off the ground.
I can stand on my own two feet
and face my problems head on.
I don’t need you to hold my hand
and tell me what’s right from wrong.
I don’t need you to fight my battles,
in fact I don’t need you at all.
sometimes i wonder why it is the way it is
did i do something wrong, something to offend?
were we ever really friends?
did i waste my time on you?
what in the world did I do?
i always wonder what went wrong
why we couldn’t keep in touch?
and did i care too much?
i wanted to be there for you
i wanted you to know
i told you stuff
no one could even guess
but you just let me go.
you turned your back
and walked away
when i needed you most.
i needed someone there for me
someone i could talk to
i needed someone who would listen
and someone who wouldn’t judge
but you were too busy partying,
having fun with your friends
you seemed to think that i’d be fine.
you thought you could be friends with me
but only during a certain time.
you believed others instead of asking me for the truth.
now i realize you were never my friend
you were the person that used me when you wanted
and left me for yourself.
i know now that you’re not worth the fight
cause all you care about is yourself
you’re self-righteous and uncaring
but that’s ok, go ahead and destroy yourself.
cause i’m moving on.
i won’t let you ruin me.
i hate the friends i used to have
i hate the friends i still want back.
i don’t like you but you’ve forgotten me,
so now i’m in misery
all by myself, always alone
home at night, no need for a phone
i live my life and i get by
but no one knows why i cry
i go to work, i go to school
i do my best to talk to you
but you ignore me when i try
so maybe i should say goodbye.
i remember the times we used to share
before you decided not to care.
we’d talk about the things we’d do when we grew up
and how we’d be friends till the end
but now it seems you don’t have time
and i’m tired of wasting mine
so remember the fun we shared
and never forget what we were
cause we’ll never be the same,
i’ll never be the same…
but perhaps it’s for the best
i let you in but you would always pretend
i trusted you after everything i’ve been through
and you let me down like the ones before.
i’ll try to forget the fun we had
but i’ll always remember the lesson i learned:
be careful with who you choose for friends.
It’s always the same
Just round and round again
We never stop, we never sit, it never ends
We yell and sometimes cry
But its not worth it to try
I’m here but you’re so far away
I’ve tried before but you won’t stay
Life keeps going, passing by us
It won’t stop and it shouldn’t
But we should
We should stop pretending
and lying to each other
We need to let go
We need to move on
So I’m doing the one thing I can
I’m giving up, giving in
Letting go of what has been
I’ll find someone new
Better than you
i gave you time
but realize now it doesn’t matter
you’ll always let me down.
whether you’re a friend or family
you should always be there for me
instead i’m by myself wondering where you’ve been.
you say you’ll call, you say you’ll text
but its just a lie to make yourself feel better.
you say you’re sorry and it won’t happen again.
you act like it’s my fault, like i’m the one who ended it.
if we were really friends or were ever family
how could you disappear and forget me?
you say you’re so busy, like i have no clue what that’s like
but life is busy and unfair
and now maybe it’s time for you to realize
that family and friends should always be there for one another
and not just when it’s convenient for one of them.
you should be there for the good and bad
when we’re happy or sad.
whether we’re pissed and upset or just feel like talking.
we should be there for each other not just when you want something.
i’ve tried my best
and i’ve walked that road
but now it’s time for me to let go.
so move on with your life
like i never existed and please remember
weddings, dresses, that’s not all
heels and makeup, today’s the ball
hairspray, nails, there’s the call
excitement and joy heard through the halls
walk don’t run, be careful, don’t fall
time to say those special words
start with i and end with do
please don’t stop, don’t be a fool
promise to love me till the end
please don’t say it’s not love,
it’s just the trend.
Restless and tired
feeling out of control
wish i had the right
to choose my role.
so out of place
yet so alike
wish i could relax
for just one night.
too young to drink
too old to whine
wish someone would tell me
“everything will be fine.”
want to stop thinking
and just let loose.
if i could
i know what i’d choose.
wishes and dreams
don’t come true
unless you work for them
when you have nothing to lose
stand up if you will
and try to win the fight
don’t give up
even if it takes all night
You ask me now,
“Do you regret it?”
“Do I regret what? Meeting?
Loving you? Our lust?
Do I regret us?”
These questions aren’t different
We’ve heard them before,
But now it’s something else
It’s something more.
“Do you regret it?” you ask once again.
“Do i regret what? The time we’ve spent?
The way we’ve been? Our sins?
Do i regret being together? Our marriage?
Our kids? Our arguments?
Is that what you’re asking as if you don’t know?
My answer is true so I hope you will trust when i say ‘No’,
I’ve never regretted the things that we’ve done
Family is what matters so i will never give up
Our love is forever so never forget-
I’ll stand by your side and never regret.
roses are red, violets are blue
we say “I love you”
but do we have any clue?
we hang, we roll, we think we’re cool,
but do we know each other
like we think we do?
we laugh and joke and that’s all fine
but do our hearts match our minds?
we live, we breathe, we go on with our day
but is there another way?
we try but fight, is this right?
should we search for happiness?
or live and add more regrets?
she looks in the mirror and
for the first time in years
she has no fear or insecurity
just content and a sense of peace
because she now knows the truth
that she is not to blame
for what he did to betray her
from that point on
she won’t need or want his love again
for she knows that it was nothing
but lies he told her to earn her trust
and make her believe that
they were perfect together
marriage is for life,
till death do you part
so before you say i do
make sure you’ve thought it through
for if you don’t
you could make a huge mistake
and end up spending your life
with someone you hate
