Hey

 

First time i've ever used "poetry" (Okay, so they're lyrics, but that works better for me) to try and get over something. It's surprisingly therapeutic, I almost feel like I could sleep now...

 

...almost...

 

I'd post about the issue, but I already know what I have to do - which doesn't make dealing with it any easier. Be gentle but honest if you reply at all (I'll consider every view a mental reply anyway) and I present:

 

One Sided Friendship

(scroll down for key)

 

With everything... you were tellin' me

While everyone else... was ignorin' you

It sounded like you were cryin for help,

Like you needed someone to let you know...

That they were there for you

ready and waiting to help~

 

-chorus-

[i guess that's...]

The funny thing

with the one-sided friendship

Is that despite

how much effort I put into it

There was never

the chance for it to be returned

 

I know you don't have to... tell me everything

But you were always there... when I needed you

and I know that there are things better unsaid

And that there are things better unknown...

But I just wanted to listen

so you'd never feel alone~

 

[Yeah that's the...]

The funny thing

with the one-sided friendship

Is that despite

how much effort I put into it

There was never

the chance for it to be returned

 

And now I feel... like I'm betrayed

Like you don't care... if I try and remain

I defended you... when you weren't there

When the others started... to rebuke

They told me you were... beyond repair

But I thought I knew the truth... the real you

But now I'm starting to see why they don't care~

 

[Too bad that's...]

The funny thing

with the one-sided friendship

Is that despite

how much effort I put into it

There was never

the chance for it to be returned

 

And now I'm getting sick of trying

Sick of being... the sympathetic ear

Maybe next time I wont defend you

Defend you from... your own fears

Because you aren't the girl I knew

The girl I knew... she hadan idea

An idea of what it meant to have a friend

A friend who 'memba's... all the years

 

[And understands that's...]

The funny thing

with the one-sided friendship

Is that despite

how much effort I put into it

There was never

the chance for it to be returned

 

I cared once, now I don't know

I need to think, you need to grow~ [up]

Things will look better in the sun

But until then I'll keep thinkun~

 

[Thinking That's the...]

The funny thing

with the one-sided friendship

Is that despite

how much effort I put into it

There was never

the chance for it to be returned

 

The funny thing

with the one-sided friendship

Is that despite

how much effort I put into it

There was never

the chance for it to be returned

 

-Key-

[ ] - Spoken out of tune

... - slight pause followed by quickly said ending of verse

~ - elongation of the word

- - bleding of the words

 

It helps if you can keep a tune in your head... =P
