You don’t seem to realize how hard I’m trying,
How hard it is for me to look into your eyes and pretend like nothing ever happened.
You don’t seem to understand that it’s painful,
That every time I see you the pain in my chest betrays me,
Pointing out that something happened after all.
I escape to my bubble of happiness,
My inner sanctuary where everything’s okay,
But within no time at all my illusion is shattered,
Pointing out that reality isn’t as fair.
I try to forget; try to find someone else,
But within no time at all I realize that they don’t compare to you.
You’re beautiful and amazing,
But you don’t seem to realize it.
I know you hurt me
I know I should be moving on
But I can’t find the strength
I can’t find it in my heart
And believe me,
