Burnt

I've fallen away from everything I've known,
my tears never cease to flow.
And now I'm in such despair over everything we've lost,
I've fallen now,
I'll never get back up.
I used to be your angel,
the one you loved so much,
and now I'm nothing,
just a girl you used to love.
I don't understand why I continue to be hurt by you,
scorned by your words,
you burnt me through.
And my heart is blackened with flame,
my dreams lost in this smoky haze.
Why must I continue to burn,
shouldn't I be gald to be living,
shouldn't I feel worth?
Yet I don't,
will I ever feel love again,
or is that gone too,
is my hope completley dead?
Turned to ash by all the hurt,
all the tears I have cried,
and all the lies,
and feelings of unwantedness that I hold in my tearing eyes.
