Hatred-Love Collision

As I walk away, I hope and pray that you'll see

That she's not the one for you, and you'll come back to me.

But you turn the other way; I guess we're not meant to be.

I watch you run back to her, and I fall to my knees.

I hope to get over all of this, only time will truly tell.

For now I hope you enjoy your life, your happiness with her is unfortunately my hell.

It worries me to know that she's going to hurt you more and more.

When I know I'd treat you right, like I've done before.

But I can't stand just sitting back, wondering what will happen next.

When your main choice doesn't work out, I don't want to be second best.

I refuse to be an option, when your first priority falls apart.

It hurts too much to love that way, when you're playing games with my heart.

I'm not going to sing harmonies, when someone else's vocals are singing in the lead.

I have my own voice to speak out, one I wish you'd listen to and heed.

You know I loved you once, and I think I love you still.

I believe I always have, and I fear I always will.

Sadly a stubborn heart beats in your body, one whose rhythm can't be rearranged.

The reasoning you have for loving her is impossible for me to change.

Then I remember wise words, which affect my whole overall outlook and aspect of life.

I feel no need for anger; stop remembering the things that once cut through me like a knife.

I suddenly realize that life is too short, to live it with regrets.

You need to love instead of hate, forgive and forget.

So take your precious time, don't live your life too fast.

It's true that troubles come, but they will surely pass.

Move on for it's just a chapter in the past, always keep that in mind.

Don't close the book just turn the page, things will continue getting better in time.

You never know how strong you are, until being strong is all you've got.

So never give up and if you do, at least you can say that you fought.
