You always did have
Such pretty things to say;
But like feathers on the wind,
They only blew away.

And you always did have
The most tender, caring touch;
But your coldness tells me
You couldn't have cared that much.

You always did have
Such warm and thoughtful eyes;
I guess it doesn't matter
When all they hid were lies.

And you always did have
Such soft and shining hair;
But it's such a shame
That you were never there.

You always did have
Comfort and reassurance to give;
But now you don't even care
Whether I die or I live.

Now I realize
The source of all my confusion;
I never loved you,
I must have loved an illusion.

Ah, Krystal! That happens to many of us. We see what we want to see, not what is. ALways a sad situation. You portrayed it very well. Thank you.

I agree with Balladeer. I must say, very good job, you portrayed the feeling excellently.
