The pain that overwhelms me day after day,
All these things keep happening; I never had a say.
I just keep bending,
It seems like I'm always pretending.
Always forgetting the things you do; the things you never say,
Oh how silly, these games we play.
I feel as though I've lost all grace,
Knowing I'm part of this high-stakes race.
Denied you heart; what's rightfully mine,
I hold up my glass and take a swig of the wine.
She'll not win; stubbornly I refuse defeat,
This is a challenge I must humbly meet.
