What's the use of believing, when everyone else has let go?

Giving up is the new Believing --*

One could count on one's hand,
All the times that you tried.
Before you let your hope fade,
Your inspiration had died.

Your world wont stand still;
We gave up long ago,
Missing the real person inside
That we've all come to know.

Now who can you confide in,
When theres no one to listen?
Once a beautiful, bright person,
You now barley glisten.

And I still believed in you,
But you, gave up on me.
A lifetime of perfect memories,
And you still threw away the key.

My efforts are wasted,
And I give up too.
Your alone now,
Hostile, lifeless; Just you.

Emotional scars are painful;
Invisible, but there, all the same.
You left millions on our hearts,
Crimson engravements of your name.

I watched you trip;
I watched you fall; I watched you shatter;
Gorgeous pieces of life, brimming with opportunity,
Scatter.

Theres nothing left to give up on,
Watch "hope" and "believe" just decay.
Some things you lose,
And some things you just give away.
