Dear ?

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Do not feel

What you believe

Happiness flowing one way

My heart  is empty

Still breathing

But not living life

Weight of unhappiness

Weighs heavier  everyday

Time ticking by

Running out

Longing for different

Before its too late

If hindsight was 20/20

I would not be in this  situation

If I could have fast  forward

To the future

And looked I would have pressed

Stop then eject

Smiling but really crying

My heart a million miles away

How do I tell you

I do not feel the same way

If it was only me

I would walk and be free

Getting harder to carry

On the  charade

Time to make a decision

Do I continue to

Live a lie

Or set us both free
