Stuck in the Past

by No1ButMe   Sep 29, 2011

Together forever
Such a beautiful lie
Most people cry tears
But my tears are all dry
Did my heart shatter
Did you hear it break
I've become nothing to you
Just your favorite mistake
I finally realized I meant nothing
I was nothing to you all along
You won't see me shed a tear
But that doesn't mean I'm strong
The butterflies left my stomach
My breath was returned
And I was left here
Now just a lesson learned
The sparkle in my eyes
Now filled with despair
I finally understand
That life isn't fair
You walked away
You seemed to progress
As I just stand here
Alone, broken, and depressed
Am I still alive
Can you even see
Just what this whole thing
Has constantly done to me
I put my hand over my heart
It still has a beat
I'm stuck in the past
And can't move my feet
I want to run to you
But there is just no way
So I'm the past where you left me
And here I will stay.
