i cannot remember the way it all began
hearing your voice over the phone 
sound of sexiness and laughter
now all i can recall is how you sounded
in anger speaking to me, it hurts
don't want to miss you
memories can lie
all the brightness i thought would be us
is ruined by your lackluster attitude
you created a world of self loathing
then lay the blame on me
when all i wanted was to show you
how colorful life could be 
basking in the journey of each other
put up a roadblock between us
making me regret trying
