Waiting at the side.

I stay waiting at the side now that you have pushed me away,
waiting and hoping that this is not the end,
the thoughts that scramble through my head,
the good the bad the happy and sad.

as the memories skips through like a slideshow some waivering for a fleeting second allowing me to savour the sweetness and happiness

But as we drift along and apart, my heart knowing the hurt it will soon feel
the memories haunt me and taunt me.

I try to turn away, why wait when I know it will end in my pain.

But how?

can anyone answer me that, how do you turn your heart off, how do you bury the memories so deep.How do you turn away when you still think there may be a glimmer of hope.

To feel foolish and lost.

Confusion that you know that you have no business feeling the way you do, caring what they do and not being important or special anymore.
But still knowing the time once spent together building hopes and dreams having plans for the future, that now will crash and break in pieces, like my life which is starting to tumble and fall like my heart that is carrying the pain of all the hurt and lies and betrayal.

But I still stay waiting at the side, even though you have pushed me aside
waiting and hoping that this is not the end,

thats what I pretend.

Waiting at the side.
