    what am i to do

    when i'm still in love with you

    and i know she walks next to you to pursue

    going through the motions of smiling

    when all the while inside i'm dieing

    didn't know this life existed

    but fate had it twisted

    from the beginning i risked it

    smoking and drinking

    i just should have listened

    to the silent signs my body showed

    grief had me i was too busy getting lifted

    to dull the pain of not being anymore

    can't describe the anguish of knowing

    i lost you before i knew you were mine

    afterwards i couldn't speak for crying

    what to do what to say who to tell

    i can't i gotta keep it too myself

    don't want to be selfish

    he has a new life and queen

    don't want to get in between

    there's nothing to do anyway

    so why even open up and say

    save him from the pain you already know

    just drink and smoke

    smoke and drink

    your life away....​

    Sounds like the pain of LOST has a hold on you too....

    I wonder if you sit and boo-hoo

    As much As I Do...

    When I think of him, them

    The pain forces me to turn

    and give In..

    to

    smoking and drinking

    drinking and smoking

    my mind's eye continuously stroking

    The Pain and Agony..

    feels like I'm losing my Sanity

    All because I refused to see...

    How easily you could turn on M.E.




    Thoruoughly enjoyed sharing the vibes expressed here...choclatangel

    thanks for the inspiriation....

    for a way to express the sorrow...wonder what i'll write about

    tomorrow...

    So emotively brought choclatangel and true2. Sometimes the pain hurts so that you look for any way to dull that ache. But step by step, eventually, the pain eases away, and we embrace ourselves. Felt your words sisters.
