God Damned Cliche

by Sarah Ann   Aug 24, 2007

[ This is just another real angry vent, and there are probably like two curses in it so I had to post it in the slang section. lol. ]

You built it up to watch it fall.
Like I meant nothing at all.
I gave and gave the best of me
But couldn't give you what you need
You walked away; you stole my heart
Knowing that I would fall apart
Completely deaf to what I warned
Perfectly knowing I was torn
You came and turned my world around
Then flipped my smiles upside down
And killed the butterflies. The faith
The strength to stay up in this place.
I can't. I try. I do. I fail.
Must fall out of this fairytale
But which way's out? When was I in?
How did I let this pain begin?
Oh, I'm so confused. So lost.
Dear, you don't mean a word you say.
I cannot sleep it off tonight,
Or think of a happier sight,
It's not as easy as you think
When your heart is left to drown
And sinks.
When someone you love abandons you
And you begin to see the truth.
The lies. So harsh...The sudden change
Fucck, he took my world away.

I'm all cried out. I need some rest,
So tired of giving my best.
I know what tomorrow will bring
When morning comes and birds will sing
I'll wake up with that same old smile
And feel quite dandy for a while
Until this sick feeling washes over me,
And I'm forced back to reality...
Suddenly remembering,
[God damned cliche]
That I am really not okay.

    This is a very true expression of what it feels like after a relationship falls apart. When we speak in cliches and are lost in the pain. Captures a moment in my life a couple of years back. Nice writing
