    If you only knew me
    for who I am,
    not what I give,
    which is my heart,
    my blood,
    my sweat and my tears,
    my eyes have cried,
    sheets stained from so many years of tears,
    brain tattered from memories scattered,
    the pieces dont match up,
    because they all just so ****** up,
    the man who treated me best,
    made me happiest,
    put all I believed in to the test,
    had me thinking of happily ever afters,
    when the end had begun before,
    wedding vows were sung,
    well.. between he and I,
    he married another and lied,
    2 months later he told me and I died,

    If you only knew,
    the he that swooned me,
    put me on a pedestal and treated me like a queen,
    never knew the secrets,
    that keeps him between,
    concrete walls and iron bars too,
    unfinished business..
    that will never be complete..

    if you only knew,
    my heart was owned by someone
    who would never lay claim,
    put it out there several times,
    each time it was broken the same,
    a lonely heart,
    never to be embraced by the one I love,
    Hardened my shell,
    thickend my skull,
    nothing like not knowing,
    or the not showing,
    of the love,
    from the one you love,
    I exposed my heart bare,
    and he wounded me,
    as if my feelings where insignifigant,
    childish and a joke,

    If you only knew,
    my soul cries,
    my heart bleeds red,
    because of all the heart wounds,
    I sometimes feel dead,
    The only thing that heals a heart,
    thats dead,
    Is love to replace the pain thats there,
    But love is a risk,
    that Im just not ready to take,
    My heart has been branded,
    torn and scorn.
    If you only knew..
    what love unretuned could do.

    Now i wait,
    for somebody to invest thier love in me,
    plant the seed of true love,
    and I bet it will grow,
    but then again,
    If you only knew,
    what I know.

    I know what u mean
    this all i've surely seen
    been through storms
    of lies and deception
    betrayal and heart break
    if one only knew
    but i say true love awaits
    i feel you deeply sis........

    Seems like the worst wounds are the ones we can't see.
    But in time even they can heal. Tyte flo, poet.
    One love

    will there ever come a time
    when all the hurt
    can be truthfully left behind?
    is there such a place
    when what is in my heart
    matters more than the colour of my face?
    will this world ever believe
    that to be true
    you do not have to be mean?

    The person that used to be
    is no longer there
    the person that could not see
    is replaced by a brand new me

    They try to close your eyes
    with fact and idiologies
    that made no sense
    and make even less now
    they try to tell you
    what to think and what to believe
    seeing the truth with open eyes
    is all that can truely set us free

    I wonder if anyone can ever match that

    Much Love
