"I Still Love Your Taste"

"I Still Love Your Taste"

A Poem by what-the-frick

I disappear and indulge
These words just consume me
This life is too hard
And I'm not who I thought I'd be

I'm a joke, all alone, in the shadow that's you
I replay and relive all the lies that you spewed
But they're hollow, like me,
And they lose all the grit
You're out there thriving while I'm feeling like s**t

How's it fair that you make all my past words sound wrong
Make me doubt the decision I toggled so long
I'm ok, but I'm not, because I'm just not that strong

I'm weak and I'm lonely and I keep losing sleep
Or I just sleep too long to continue a dream
Because dreams keep the promises I know you can't give
It's easy without you, but harder to live

So I'll pray every night I don't wake the next day
My hate and my love for you's measured the same
It's loathsome and bitter
And leaves sour hearts
I wish that you cared that you ripped me apart

I'm hypersensitive. I feel emotional over things that don't hold substance. You can break my heart with just a look. I don't give up without a fight. My life is a soundtrack. But pay attention, the mu.. more..
