Dumb

I see you smile at me from a distance

And my heart jumps at an instant.

You walk towards me with arms wide open

And right past me, to embrace another woman.

I can’t swallow, not even breathe,

Is it real or just a stupid dream?

I don’t know, I can’t tell,

It’s like you shut me into a shell.

I can’t see, I can’t hear,

I can’t hold you when you are near.

You don’t know, you don’t care,

You’ll be happy when my heart will tear.

Why can’t I tell you how I feel?

All the pain you caused me needs to heal.

You said you loved me when we went out,

I was in love with you, no doubt.

Then things got bad and you stopped calling,

I sat by the phone all night bawling.

I moved on in a month or two,

You moved on that night in June.

I forgot your number, I ripped up your letter,

I want you to know I found someone better.

You thought you loved me, I thought I loved you,

But all this time, I didn’t even know you.

And here’s some advice, get some help,

Cause all you’re trying to be is like everyone else.
