"if we begin to discover a feeling within ourselves that nothin in this world can satisfy we should begin to wonder if perhaps we were created for another world" -C.S Lewis

There is so much to say with so little time
but I just can’t find the truth
because somehow I got stuck in the middle
by wanting to believe in you

I wish that this wasn’t happening
and I wish I didn’t know
about this pain you brought with you
the scars that I don’t let show

I wanted so badly to believe in you
and that’s why I gave you my heart
I didn’t know then it would only be shattered
and slowly torn apart

it was almost as if you didn’t care
as each tear fell down my face
it was as if you didn’t want to fill the gaps
you were content with all the space

I wish I wasn’t so stupid
people say it wasn’t me
I wish that I could believe them
and see what they say they see

I guess you could say I am moving on
but I need you to know the truth
despite everything you did to me
I hate myself for still loving you

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross

This is really good. It's so relatable for me, it's scary. And I agree with octoberwind, it does flow very well. (:

that was good. I like the way you made things rhyme and flow so smoothly. It was kind of lyrical and musical. I know it sounds tacky but its nice when things rhyme (even if you're not little anymore) , it makes them much more memorable.
