It Was Never Enough

Cruel words.
It was never enough for you, nothing was ever good enough
I gave up my life, my friends my family for you

But it was never good enough for you
I went emotionally numb for you

I would close my eyes each night for you and pray to survive for you
I was the victim yet I comforted you instead

I would cry each night as I lay dying slowly in your arms
But even as I kept my death a secret from you it was never good enough for you

The day I died, the day I lay forgotten in your arms as you walked away
Leaving me laying cold and alone in this forgotten world of death and pain

Drowning in my tears instead of yours
I still can hear you words as I close my eyes
As I lay dying you said I wasn’t good enough
