Fatal Flaw

By MidniteBlaze

This is the way it is
and the way it always shall be
you can sleep fine without me
you already want nothing to do with me
and I've accepted it
kinda bothers me that I do though...

Because deep down I still care
no matter how many times you bother me...

(fuck you)

If they didn't care the first time
then why bother trying again
a fatal flaw
someday it will be the death of me

(I love you...)

I can't let my thoughts decieve me
and I cannot let you do it to me either
a struggle with thyself just to let you go
it's so easy for you, why can't be be the same

Why can't I be heartless
it would make the process easier
never forgive and forget
because the memories are as good as gone
if the feelings are not the same
and of course I'm to blame

If it's my fault I care no more
I've made to many sacrifices to care what you think of me
and I know what you think of me
because if you can't insist on you being right to me
then you will do it with a close friend of mine instead

If they didn't care the first time
then why bother trying again
a fatal flaw
someday it will be the death of me
and emotionally it already has been
as I have not the heart to get into another relationship

    Pass my eyes deep into my soul. This is so easily related to for me...it's frightening.

    The insults followed by I love you...is painful and eloquent. Very effective.
