Foolish (2011)

Maybe I really was foolish to love you,

Maybe I should've NOT let myself like you,

Maybe I shouldn't have been so willing...

Willing to see where this would go,

Just where loving you would take me...

Smile,

It's getting harder with each day,

Smile,

Seems more and more like work...

Smile,

I've been forcing myself to do it lately;

Just so that everyone will think that I'm okay...

Maybe I shouldn't have thought it,

Maybe I shouldn't have told you,

Maybe I should've actually SAID it,

-And not texted it...

Maybe I shouldn't have bothered,

Maybe I should've kept it too myself.

Smile,

I getting harder with each day,

Smile,

Seems more and more like work...

Smile,

I've been forcing myself to do it lately;

Just so that everyone will think that I'm okay...

Maybe, some days I wish that I'd never met you,

Maybe I wish that I hadn't asked you to that party,

Maybe I some days I wish I hadn't been so eager...

Eager to get to know you...

Maybe I say these things, 

Just so that I'll feel a little better...

But we both know that I don't mean it,

And darling,

I PROMISE that I don't regret any of it...

Because if I hadn't fallen in love with you,

Hadn't gotten to know you,

My life would be so empty right now.

-And even though this hurts like hell,

...Just friends...

I'm glad to have met you,

Glad I got to know you,

Glad we went to that party together,

Glad I fell in love with you,

Even glad in the end,

That I told you...

Don't worry,

I'll get over it eventually,

...Someday...

Smile,

What chance do I have anyway?

Smile,

'Cause I'm too proud to let you see me cry,

Smile,

I promise NOT to let you see me cry;

Maybe some days I wish I could forget you,

But I know I never will,

And maybe you'll never know,

Just how much you mean to me;

You'll probably never even read this,

'Cause it's here,

On The Rose Page.

Emo, angsty gothic love stories, mostly some kind of poetry. A passion I didn't know I had until I was about 21. Something that I have been doing mostly consistently ever since. My pen name is Belasrose, my online name is Caerid Lock.
