As Time Fades, So Does Hope
Author: Brett


Have you ever felt so alone it drove you insane?
Waiting for someone to open their eyes to your pain..
Complex thoughts of emotions reach their boundaries
Feeling as if they are slowly overflowing within me..

Is it worth waiting for what people call fate?
As each day fades, so does hope, is it now too late?
They say nothing heals wounds like time
But I've waited all my life to heal this heart of mine

I'm too weak to go on like this much longer
I guess this is the only thing that won't make me stronger
Hiding behind a fake image of myself doesn't help..
The reality of life has made me force this upon myself

Friends don't understand the complexity of my thoughts..
Parents don't know the pain they've actually brought..
I'm hoping for my life to soon turn around
Simply waiting for that one opportunity to be found..

All relationships in my life are slowly dying
It's hard to relate when on the inside I'm crying..
If I were to show my inner thoughts for the world to see..
I wonder if they would be scared, or accept me for me?

------- Author's Notes -------

It's hard to be alone at times. When it feels as if no-one understands how you feel.


I just want to say a big thank you to Katie for always being there when I need.
No-one can help me at times, but you deffinately make it easier. :)
