I'm tired
Tired of being a party of one
Tired of watching couples walk hand and hand through the coffee-shop window
Tired of feeling empty
Tired of feeling misunderstood
Tired of having my heart broken by men who don't meet my standards to begin with
Tired of seeing so much potential in a person only to be let down
Tired of waiting for the phone to ring
Tired of waiting for a knock on the door
Tired of looking up every time someone walks by
Tired of hoping it might be you
Tired of being left because my past isn't all roses and sunshine
Tired of being penalized because of my strength and independence
Tired of falling asleep at night holding my pillow
Tired of crying over people who just don't give a damn
Tired of only being hit on by bums
Tired of living vicariously through the couples on T.V.
Tired of hoping you'll change
Tired of hoping you'll notice
Tired of waiting for you to let me in
Tired of coming in second
Tired of lighting candles for myself
Tired of listening to love songs and having no one to dance with
Tired of not having someone's hand to hold
Tired of walking around the city alone
Tired of not having someone to curl up and watch a movie with
Tired of being so "cool" amd "cute" and "funny"
Tired of only being told "I love you" by my mom
Tired of this chair next to me being empty
Tired of being unappreciated
Tired of being looked at in pity
Tired of paying for my own movie ticket
Tired of putting-out to keep you around
Tired of feeling guilty for not sleeping with you
Tired of feeling comfort in solitude
Tired of being told to be patient
Tired of being told "it's not you"
Tired of finding happiness in my memories
Tired of feeling inadaquate
Tired of being attractive to guys who just want to f*%$ me and leave
Tired of not feeling the warmth of an embrace
I'm tired of being alone

Brianne...this was a piece of my own life it seems. Find your comfort in the fact that we all share this feeling from time to time. I enjoyed your post immensely.

For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...
