Please Forgive Me

Can you ever forgive me for what I did? The way I broke your trust I wouldn’t forgive me. I’m sorry I let my feelings get in the way I’m sorry My feelings made things hard for you. When what I feel for you is true, I should never have made things difficult for you….

A Flawed Love

I have never wanted you to give me the stars I have never wanted the moon All I had wanted were moments spent with you Small, insignificant and yet so dear. To wake up next to you To run my fingers on your face Pillow talks as we fall asleep To hold you and be…

I Cannot Make You Love Me
