Contradiction

by

Anastacia

Walking through the crowded depths of my soul
I search for the meaning of what my heart holds
I wonder why I feel the way I do
After all the delinquent things youíve done
And why Iíve never thought this through

I always try to avoid it, push it to the back of my mind
But, as always, like you it creeps back
Lurking in the shadows and never showing itís true self
Escaping the front I put up to keep you out
You always seem to get your way
You break down the barrier and yet again
Iím the one left to rebuild it

Yet again, Iím the one left with all the heartache
You left without a care in this world
Leaving my shattered heart in pieces on the floor
And how the story always seems to go
I see you with the girl next door
Standing outside our school yard gates

Fists clenched, I walk past you, trying not to look
Trying not to let the hurt seep through into expression on my face
Thoughts rushing through my mind
Disturbing and ravenous thoughts of what I could do to you
I walk past you with the same glint in my eye gazing at you in the process

You stare back at me wide-eyed and weary
She looks at me smiling
With the same besotted grin on her face
I do something I thought I could never to towards you again
I smiled at you
I realised I no longer felt anything for you

Knowing that you ended up with the one girl that I knew for sure
Would end up breaking your heart made me happy
And all I can do is feel sorry for you
Because youíre the one who missed out, not me
I thought Iíd be lost without you
But the truth is, Iíve finally found myself
