My Rose

Falling in love; it hurts so much.
The pain just grows as you're falling apart.
But how is it that it hurts even more
If i never had you from the start.

Does any of this mean one damn thing?
Is this all just wasted time i've spent?
I always trip on the line that divides
who I am and who I invent.
Neither one of us will let the other in too deep.
Too afraid of what the other's gonna think.

All this pain and failure makes me feel
like I've been living a hundred years.
I can't remember ever sleeping
without a pillow full of tears.
My soul is abused and gone;
I keep coming back for more.
You're the prettiest rose in the garden;
And I'm bleeding from the thorns.

How can wanting to give you the world
be something I shouldn't feel?
Are cold shoulders and dodging eyes
signs of emotions not so real?
You never could really look me in the eye.
Cover up your lies with all my truths.
Haven't you heard? Love's a two-way street.
I got a feeling I'm bein' used.

The past always holds the better days.
Then i tripped on the feeling of being alive.
i mistook you for someone who gave a damn.
The good memories are struggling to survive.
I was on my knees, prayin' for rain.
Didn't know I'd get a storm.
You're the prettiest rose in the garden;
and I'm bleeding from the thorns.

Maybe someplace, far from now
When I don't need to remember anymore,
I'll stop by and pay you a visit
to pick up my heart from your bedroom floor.
While I'm there, I'd also like back
my intensity and my attitude.
And if you're finished, I'd like my soul
and all the emotions you abused.

If you could just take off your armor
and leave your status home for the night.
See the Me you always ignore.
See the Me you could learn to like.
Why am I the Runner-up
whenever i run your race?
But play the game inside my heart
and you'll always get first place.

Gave you my heart but you didn't
seem to know what it was for.
You still the prettiest rose in the garden.
And I'm still bleeding from the thorns.



 We all got somethin' we need to atone for.

'sigh'
That had to be one of the most touching, heart-felt poem I have ever had the plessure of reading, the way you have written this and your use of symbols are amazing . I nearly ended up cryingover this one . Good work keep it up .

Ethan - this is heart felt and well

and the thorns as comparison.
