It Never Fails
My hopes and dreams are brought to life,
Only to see them come crashing down around me,
I was doing everything right,
At least I thought I was,
It amazes because deep down inside I tell myself,
Do not get your hopes up,
Do not get excited,
Do not believe them,
I ignore that inner voice,
I shake it off and try to live with no regrets,
Again I am mislead,
Time and time again,
I believe them with passion and furor,
With this much enthusiasm what could wrong?
Only everything apparently,
Now I sit here alone with my broken heart in million pieces,
I should have known better,
The signs were there,
I chose to ignore them,
Blind, so blind I was,
I must be guarded for now,
What is coming around the corner?
It never fails me to see my world shattered in an instant.
