and i'm standing here alone, trying to make this life my own

you know what hurts the most? the feeling of being replaced.

it's like no matter what you did, it wasn't enough. and no

matter what you do to try and capture their heart

again, doesn't seem to work. and you're suddenly

left thinking that you'll never be enough. and a

sudden sadness captures the heart that never really leaves.


someday i hope you find everything you want,

just forgive me for everything i'm not.


i was mid-laugh when you called. just reading your name

from my phone stunned me so fiercely

that for two seconds, i truly couldn't breathe.

and from my sudden silence, all of my friends could tell that

it was you.


eventually all the pieces fall into place. until then, laugh

at the confusion, live for the moment

and know that everything happens for a reason.


there will always be those awkward moments when you

pass that person and remember what you used to have.


i didn't change. i'm still the girl who sits around and

laughs at dumb things and walks

with the biggest smile on her face. you're just mad

because frankly, i got tired of bullshit

and don't give a damn anymore.


she broke down that other day, yeah you know.

some things in life may change. but some things, they stay

the same.


she's strong, because she knows what it's like to be weak.

she keeps a guard, because she knows what it's like to cry

herself to sleep.


what you say and how you look does not define who you are,

because some of the most beautiful people do the ugliest things.

you owe it to the people who hate you, who disrespect you,

and who put you down, because they are not the ones

who have made you who you are today; for keeping your head up

and not breaking down when you want to.


when faced with two choices, simply toss a coin.

it works not because it settles the question for you.

but because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air,

you suddenly know what you are hoping for.


learn from your past and move on, grow stronger. people are

fake, but let your trust last longer. do what you got to do,

but always stay true, and never let anyone get the best of you.


you exhaust way too much time and energy on a girl you

call "just your friend."


years from now i won't remember every friday night or the

things that made us laugh so hard 'til our stomachs hurt,

but i will always remember that you were

the ones who were there.


love is a lot like music. there's many different

kinds and endless anmounts of it.

but there's only a few songs you don't get

tired of.


rumors are vicious, talk is cheap. words are malicious,

secrets you should keep. gossip is fake and it'll make the deepest cut.

so learn from the past and keep your mouth shut.
