Try To Love

Sat, 08/23/2014 - 21:06 -- nsussan

I will not love.
At least not you.
My life has gone.
Passed me by
Too many tears.
So much pain
I will try to learn to love again
But not for you.

There's so much more the world has to offer.

Then for me to be wasting time on you.

 

I loved before

I fought the tears

Hid the pain.

Once you left, I thought it was all gone.

Now, all I have to do is try to love.

And hope it all turns out right.

 

All the wrong turns.

Going left when I shouldda gone right.

Messing up every chance I get.

Wishing for another one.

The time to make it right.

Let it shine.

Be the center of the whole damn world.

I realized it was never true, just a really long dream.

 

I loved before

I fought the tears

Hid the pain.

Once you left, I thought it was all gone.

Now, all I have to do is try to love.

And hope it all turns out right.

 

Everything reminds me of him.

I just will never love you.

You just don't see it.

It all has to be your way.

You pretend to be so innocent.

When really you lie to get to their heart.

It's all you ever do.

I loved before.

Just not this time.

Not for you.

Not playing this game anymore.

Just to love and get left with a broken heart trying not to love you with all the little pieces.

It's just not worth all the tears.

To love and get hurt, just to love again.

I'll try to love.

Just not for you.

And not today.

 

Day after day.

Night after night.

Love passes me by.

I see it, but don't do a thing.

I wanna reach out and grab it.

Too scared you'll come a long and take it.

I can't.

I won't.

I don't want you.

You're nothing I need.

Nothing I want.

There'll come a day.

Where I'll love.

But not today.

Not for you.

I'll just try to love.

Someone else.
