Where The Fault Lies

The silliest things haunt me now
Sleeps once peaceful, are broken now
The smallest fight leaves its scars
My questionnaire hides my painful eyes
Drinking tears instead of water tonight


Where the fault lies
Does it matter in a fight?
What was my folly really,
Except to ask too much
Or was it to trust freely?
***
Maybe I don’t know how to behave
How to open up or be unafraid
I don’t mean to hurt
But somehow you end up mad
And I end up hurt
***
Mistake isn’t yours
Maybe it’s mine then
Maybe it is something we don’t know yet
Everything seems to be slipping away
With tides, the sand castles are washed away
***
Why do I feel so hollow and dark?
Like an arrow waiting for it’s mark
Maybe that’s why you aren’t afraid to leave
So here I am scared to share too much, lest
You run away from the mere touch
***
Why do I feel misunderstood,ย misjudged?
Even by me, I am making myself more confused, you see
Wants and needs have becomes harder to define
I need to run away from all the made up lies
This bold exterior is cracking more with every fight
***
The silliest things haunt me now
Sleeps once peaceful, are broken now
The smallest fight leaves its scars
My questionnaire hides my painful eyes
Drinking tears instead of water tonight
***
Still the broken heart-ed girl dreams of you
Thinking you will come alive and stay true
She believes in you more than she does in herself
She is merely holding on, breath by breath,
So will you stay? or will this fantasy break?

Been busy, so this isn’t refined yet… Maybe I will try rewriting what I wanted to put across in better words at a later time… Till then, just wanted to write and put it out… My initial random thoughts… Hope it isn’t too bad

  2. I like this one. You pulled together some really good emotion. I love the lines, “Here I am afraid to share too much, Lest you run away from the mere touch.” Fear is such a terrible master!
