Real and true love doesn't exist,
It's a fantasy people created...

If someone tells me that they love me, 

Does that mean they'd do anything for me?

Does it mean they think about me?

Or does it mean they feel lonely themselves...

How can they say it so easily?

"I love you"...

It doesn't mean anything to me,

People like family say they love me,


Do they really?

Or do they just feel responsible for me...

I believe that what people mean to say is,

"I feel responsible for you",

Not love,

Love is a bond so strong nothing can break it,

Not even heaven itself,

It's pure and completely worth it,

But love doesn't exist...

Not in this world,

Not anywhere...

But some just can't seem to face the truth,

If you can't face it then you're just believing a lie,

I believe I'm meant to be alone,

I may have friends and family around me,

But I feel so lonely in the inside...

It's okay...

I'm slowly getting used to it,

The pain...

The tiredness...

The emptiness...

It's just how it's meant to be,

We were born alone and we'll die alone...

That's just how life is,

Cruel and real...

Too real.
