I'm Done With 'I'm Sorry'

Apologys come from people who are sorry...

Is it SO hard

To realize how bad I'm hurting?

I guess it might be,

Since I pretend to be okay,

But shouldn't you know better by now,

Or do you not care at all?

I'm sick of standing there,

Being your shadow,

Instead of the girl you love.

I'm tired of pretending I love the distance,

I want you quite close,

But you can't be if you pretend I don't exsist.

I'm only there when YOU need someone to listen,

I'm only there when YOU need a hug,

I'm only there when YOU need a kiss,

And when it's my turn,

You forget I breathe.

You're focussed on your dreams,

And I'm glad,

But the people you associate with to get there,

Aren't there to support you.

It's all about you,

And that's how it should be,

But when is it my turn?

You don't trust me,

When I'm the one who's sitting there,

Hands cupped,

Smiling from ear to ear,

Not doing a DAMN thing about anything!

I should tell you,

But you'd give me some lame excuse about how you don't want to hurt me.

I'm tired of saying I'm sorry for something I didn't commit.

I don't want to break your cold heart,

That's why I'm still here.

I'm not saying I'm a prized jewel or anything,

But you don't realize what you have until it's gone.

And, darling,

I'm not sorry.
