Trying Only To Fail

Sun, 07/26/2015 - 03:26 -- astarz

You tried to decipher my 
 ­                                                             d 
P r o b i n g into my feelings and thoughts only grew u s  apart
Hope for change in the way that 
                                                       I am 
                                           only caused us pain
You had told me love would change me but you never took into account all the
                                                                ­                                                  flaws 
                                                                ­                                      we never knew about
Day after day of trying the same things only ended in 
                                                                ­                           disappointment 
                                                                ­                                                     despair
                                                         ­                                                                 ­       and hatred
When our faith in what could be achieved 
                       ceased to exist
and our love 
                      finally grew t h i n
                                                              o­nly few words were left to say
