    All this time

    I felt insecure
    as you turned and walked out that door
    my heart went to chase you
    screaming about that promise it made
    to never ever hu'... ahh **** it

    All this time
    since that day the sun hasn't shined so brightly
    a taste that I'll never have again
    a smile from you I can never kiss again
    stuck on the outside
    looking in broken windows
    missi' ... hmmm

    All this time
    All this wasted emotion inside
    swallowed it down
    it comes again
    a lump in my throat
    can't totally digest love
    and confession burns my eyes, trembles my lips
    yet I have to maintain
    to maintain death again
    wanting to cal'.... ****

    All this time

    I never saw the real you
    You never understood my flaws
    Strangers in love doing what was expected
    Loving what was expressed
    Wanting all I could never have
    All those times I tried
    Full of pride
    Too high to come down to
    Too stubborn to help u see inside
    Betting on time
    Thinking you will learn to lov'

    All this time

    That life is gone
    That me
    That you
    That us
    Looking in my child's eyes and can't shake it
    Though I smile half way dad just didn't make it
    Having to share I love you's and birthdays
    Doing what’s done because I have to
    Living happiness through her
    A constant reminder of my greatness
    The bliss is now faded, though it's still beautiful
    I see the mirror nightly as I dream
    about y' hmmm,

    yes I can say it now…
    I see it nightly as I dream about you
    screaming about the promises made to never ever hurt you
    looking in broken windows missing the **** out of you
    wanting to call your name
    betting on time thinking you’d learn to love me
    and I see it nightly as I dream about you

    after all this time

    "I never saw the real you
    You never understood my flaws
    Strangers in love doing what was expected"

    Those lines in particular struck a chord with me. Sometimes we can still get to know the other person, the real person, and still love what we found. Your pieces usually leave the reader with something to ponder, and I like that poet.
