unwashable pain

By to love a psycho

my silence is like that
of the faded line
crossed so long ago
the eyes that never seem to want
to meet with your own
forever losing
forgivness for your sins
i wear my sign of pain
advertising my shame
with ever glance
you unlock the memory
pushed so far back
i gave my heart away
with no exscape of its loss
i tried so hard
to remain clean of it all
but i always revisit
i can't wash my pain away
why did you make the promise
you refused to keep?
love to you is lust
and i took in every word you said
adoration pouring from my soul
i thought i was loved
when in reality
i was mistaken

    Love can sometimes be a lie that wishes only to consume your mind. But I'll always be here to help you pick up the pieces.. xoxo

    You're not a whore. To love and not be loved in return burns like hell. If you find the right friends though, it starts to sting a little less, and if you see things from the right perspective, you will probly find more than pain.

    And for the record, the only people I consider whores are the ones who give it up with no emotion involved, and do it repeatedly with no discretion. You're not a whore.

    Very deep, lust is mistaken frequently for lust, and those who love someone who only lusts in return, have heavy hearts.
