Why Do I Cry?

Why
Do I cry
Over someone
Who doesn’t want
Me?
Why
Does it hurt
To miss someone
Who doesn’t see
Me?
Why
Do I try?
Why
Do I
Keep letting
You
Hurt Me?
Why
Do I care
That you’re not
There?
Why
Am I blind
To all that is
Here
Right here
In front of
Me?
Why
Do I
Keep getting
My Hopes
Up?
When it is
Plain to see
That You
Don’t
Give A Damn
About
Me…

It Took Losing You, To Find Myself

It took losing you
To find myself
I thought you were want I wanted
More than anyone else
But now that you’re gone
I can finally see
I wasn’t looking for you
I was trying to re-find me
I wasn’t happy with the life I had
The constant monotony
Just made me sad
I poured my heart and soul
Into loving you
Spent all my time
Trying to build something new
Now I look back
And see that I was wrong
What I needed
Was in front of me all along
I was just blind
I couldn’t see
Too busy trying to be
Everything for someone else
Neglecting the one
Who loves me more
Than anyone else
It took losing you
To finally find myself
I thought I wanted you
But all I really wanted was me.
