The Heart-By Ben Bernard

Thump Thump Thump i feel it within.

Thump Thump Thump i see the girl, the feeling returns

Thump Thump Thump oh the pain

I long to be loved, but no one can love me

Thump Thump Thump why is it so hard to be loved but not to fall into

Thump Thump Thump make it stop!

I know i am not good enough and yet i try.

I have never been loved.

Thump Thump Thump I take a chance i walk up to her. “Are you free on saturday”?

“No, sorry, i have a date with death”. Comes the reply

The words sting worse than they should. I walk away.

Thump Thump Thump. Oh the pain

Why can't people just see me for the kind loving person i am. All people see is my ugly face and they judge. It hurts so bad. I want to be loved.

Thump Thump Thump. I see a girl. The feelings return. I stop. My heart says yes my brain says no. What will i do? My heart says yes my brain says no. What will i do? I walk up to her and before I ask her, i wonder will this time be different?
