And Just Because...

Poem By Amber Millar

Just because she comes off strong,
That doesn't mean she doesn't cry herself to sleep,
Just because she says nothing's wrong,
That doesn't mean she's OK,
Can't you see she's lying through her back teeth?
If only you saw her,
Cracks in the pavement are just reminders that no matter how strong you are,
Everything falls apart,
Just because...

Or with you if need be,
Hold your hand as you plunge into reality,
And when you are scared I will comfort you,

From Where I'M Stood

It feels like a million different voices are talking,
All at once,
And I can't really hear what's being said,
Can't translate the meaning,

I Never Meant To Do This

I never meant to do this,
I'm sorry,
I never meant to fall for you,
I'm sorry,
