The Pain Is Still Here

by TheWorldFellNUWerentThere   Jul 10, 2009


Don't bother locking the door
When you come home tonight
I'm planning on leaving
When I hear you stumble up the stairs

I'm no longer living a fairytale, I once knew
You gave me everything I thought I wanted
But in the end, I found you were nothing
Your specialty was lying

I'm gonna go out in the world
And find myself once again
Find a new identity
One that you cant bring down

There's been too many nights
I fell to my knees
Trying to make you happy
Hoping to save myself from your anger

There's been too many nights
I laid beside you trying to keep the tears in
With your words burning in my memory
Wondering why I'm here

There wasn't much I could've done
Maybe tried to crawl away but
In the end I would've been in the same situation
I began with

Tonight, I'm leaving
Find myself again
Start a new life, without you
Leaving those nights behind

I deserve better then what you've given me
I deserve a man who treats me well
I deserve a body without bruises
I deserve a life without you.

    *I can really relate to this stanza. I know what it's like to fall for someone thinking they are what's best for you and have them hurt you beyond belief in the end. I though you wrote this stanza very well*

    There's been too many nights

    *This was my favorite stanza. I love the imagery you use throughout the whole piece. The style is good and the flow is nearly perfect. I can tell you put your all into this. Very emotional piece. I loved it. Keep it up. Nik*
