Never Enough





I feel the tears burning my eyes
My heart contracting with the pain
That nostalgic feeling so familiar
Here we go again…

Love found with the sunrise
So often lost as the sun sets
Love flees so often
There’s no time to forget

I love so very deep
I love so very strong
I try so hard to please
Somehow, I’m always wrong
Somehow, not quite pretty enough
Somehow, not quite sweet enough
Not passive or passionate enough
Always...not good enough
Always...someone better
So my tears outnumber my smiles
And my fears outweigh my self-esteem
Over and over and over again
      Love flees from me
   This is my fate, it seems.
