I wish you could walk a day in my shoes.

See what it's like to be me, and feel all the pain that you brought into my life.

The thought of you doesn’t haunt me as it once did; it just appears in the darkest places.

As a faded memory that can never be revived.

I didn’t know it was possible to feel all the things I have until you came along. 

You showed me what it was like to love, to trust, and have someone who will always be there to catch you when you fall, be there through the tears and all.

But you also showed me what it was like to hurt, to cry, so hard you can't breathe.

What it was like to be stuck on someone, holding on to the hopeless dying faith, while you’re trapped inside their memories.

You showed me I was wrong; to ever believe in such things as meant to be, and destiny.

You killed all my hopes and dreams and proved there’s no 'fairy tales' or 'happy endings' you proved it's all just make believe.

Just like your fake smile, your fake words you could never mean.

You said you loved me, but that couldn’t be.

Then why would you do this to me? If it wasn’t love then what was I feeling inside?

What died, and brought all the tears? I feel like a fool to know there was a point, I believed every word you spoke to me, believed every broken and empty promised you vowed.

Trust is the hardest thing to gain, but the easiest thing to lose. I really thought I knew you.

Was I mistaken? Or did you just change into the one thing; I never wanted you to be.

 They say 'fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me' and I drowned in the shame, along with the chances you were throwing away.

And behind this broken mistrusting girl, lies you, the one who made me this way.

The one who did all he could to make me believe then didn’t do anything but walk out and leave
