    I don't know how to say goodbye....

    Torn between the truth and a dream
    Nothing is ever what it may seem
    How can a lie be confused with truth
    Stepping back into time, back to my youth

    Feelings I can't seem to keep locked inside
    Emotional rollercoaster taking me for a ride
    Build me up then break me
    If this is how my life is meant to be

    I run, but I can't find my secret hiding place
    I can't seem to win this race
    The closer I get, the more I get left behind
    I must see to survive but this love has made me blind

    Your true colors have made it's way through
    What has become of you?
    With them I must paint a work of art
    For you have already captured my heart

    My life is no longer what I knew
    You do not hide what I am to you
    To the night I must surrender
    Prisoner to the pain when I remember

    In with the new, out with the old
    What's harder to grasp is stronger to hold
    What wasn't meant to last
    Is now a thing of the past

    The faster I run
    The less it will become
    Forget what I said
    Please let go of what I did

    Why am I forced to walk away
    The emptiness subsides with each passing day
    I can fake this smile and give you a lie
    But I just don't know how to say goodbye...

    I love your expression

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
