This is about someone in my life who I thought was the greatest person ever, who really just turned out to be just a stranger.

You were there when I fell,

but you weren’t there to pick me up.

You were standing there when I needed you,

but when I looked up you turned away.

You were there when I started to cry,

but when I felt the tears roll down my face you weren’t there to wipe them away.

I’ve always needed you.

You just never knew.

You were there all those times my heart shatter into a million pieces,

but you never once picked them up and put them back together again.

You were there when I needed advice more then life,

but you walked away and never said one word.

You were there when I messed up and did wrong,

but instead of a talking to, you gave me a yelling to.

Every word you ever said meant the world and more to me.

You just never knew.

You were there when my faith was gone,

but didn’t even give me a smile or “it’ll be alright“.

You were there when I hated with such passion,

but you never showed me to love and not to hate.

You were there when I gave up all those times,

but never did you show me giving up was never the answer.

I watched and learned from you.

You just never knew.

I thought I always needed you,

but now I see it’s only that, thought.

I thought ever word you told me was worth something special,

but now I see they were just lies and bullshit.

I thought while watching you I would learn something,

but now I see the only thing you taught me was how to do wrong.

You just never knew,

what an excuse.

Never Knew
