Artificial Sunrise

Other halves aren’t a necessity

I can be whole on my own

It does get lonely out here on my own

I value the times when I am alone

That doesn’t mean I’m better off that way

Sad, sick, and tired

Of wishing for happiness

Love isn’t a simple once upon a time

With a smooth transition to happily ever after

 

Just stay away from me

Unless you have pure intentions

Reasons, excuses, casanova foolishness

I don’t need any of it

I’ve been through enough

I’ve been hurt enough

I need to keep reminding myself

That my butterflies for you aren’t all dead

But you’re not perfect

You’re wrong for me

 

Turn me to dust

Maybe my heart can’t be ripped out

If I keep it close to me

Turn me to stone

Harden my emotions

Still soft-hearted

 

Jaded

Frustrated

Who’s more damaged

Me or my type?

I resign from playing waiting games

There’s only so many times

A heart can break

There’s only so much

That I can take

Take your antics and battlefields

To a woman who doesn’t care

 

I’ll never stop trying

But the little girl who fell at feet

Is long gone

She moved on

She can still fall in love

If you love the self

That she learned to love
