Behind the Scenes

You hear the laughs

See the smiles

You get envious of it

You crave it for yourself

But do you know how much work

It took to get them there?

Do you know how many times

She gets on his nerves?

How many times he makes her mad?

They deserve to be happy

Because no matter what

They fight for their love

On and off the screen

Beat Us To It

They were once like me

Caring and loving and always there

Then they stopped

Leaving you in a place of

Unrequited love and affection

So you had to change the way you did things

Locking it all away to avoid pain

Never wanting to be hurt again

Now with new love in your life

Your expectations are for

A repeat of the past

At least your actions say so

So you’ve already fast forwarded

To the part where you need not show affection

Now I stand here with all the extra

Looking into cold eyes

That feel a pain that I did not inflict

Revert

A question plagues my mind

If you could change for the worst

To please them

Only for them to walk away

Why can’t you change for the better

For someone that you know will stay?

The answer lies with me though

Because they forced you to be different

From the person that you were

And I

Would never force you

To be anyone who

You didn’t want to

Or couldn’t be

So I will suffer

Until you realize

That you can’t keep blaming the past

You are in control of your actions

You decide whether we crumble

Or whether we will last
