In all this time since we've met
You've caused me heartbreak and pain
And now, in my heart, I've managed to forget,
all that you are, and you are merely a name.
When I first saw you, all I was told
is that all you would give me was regret.
But I ignored them, I saw you as more than gold.
You were more than a name, one I didn't want to forget
I was blind, but you could could see clearly
You stole my heart, you tore it to pieces.
I've taken glue, and now it stands, though weakly.
But when I hear your name, its strength ceases.
I've told myself these feelings are good
That Tennyson was right all along
But sadly, I misunderstood
Your name is no better than any other wrong.
So I say to you now,
it was you I overcame,
I can't see how,
You'll ever be more than a name.
*So I don't remember writing this, but I wrote it recently. I'm pretty sure I was asleep when it was written, but I like it :)
