Who Am I? And What Are You?

Who am I? And what are you?
I am a lost soul, trapped in a body that belongs to nowhere
And you .. You are a memory. A mirage
A wandering soul looking for a place to call home
a place, a heart, another soul
Maybe someone else’s arms to embrace
Embracing a hologram. Embracing something so unreal
I feel you under my skin. Yet I can’t get hold of you
You are a dream. Something I get when I’m asleep
You are a mirage that disappears when I’m near
Or maybe a memory that soon I will no longer remember
Or a moment I will cherish probably forever
You and I are a part of something that could be me
Or maybe not
But until then, I’ll hide in the mirage you are
Embrace it and be a part of it
And always know that I’m ready whenever you are

    Forgive me, my love.

    Forgive me, my love,
    For I have betrayed you
    I betrayed your love, your trust,
    I betrayed us

    Forgive me, my love,
    For I have never meant to hurt you,
    I never wanted to see you suffer
    Tears still flow every night as I wish I could die,
    Now my eyes and heart are just as dry

    Forgive me, my love,
    For I did the unforgivable
    Show me you love me one more time,
    Ignore my weakness one last time,

    Close your eyes

    Tell me,
    If I told you the whole truth,
    Would you even believe me?

    I only need you to know my heart is pure,
    Though I know my deeds made you feel insecure

    Forgive me, my love,
    For you broke my heart and shattered my soul
    For this is too much pain for me to take,
    Give me a chance to love again

    Forgive me, my love,
    For I trusted our love more than myself
    We said forever and a day,
    I thought we were heading this way

    Forgive me, my love,
    For it didn’t last as long
    It is all because of me,
    I knew you were perfect for me,
    And I’ll love you forever and beyond.
