Passed you by somewhere along the way……
I looked up…
And I realized I was taking this trip alone….
I waited for you
I held back for you
I stunted my growth for you…..
To encourage yours.
In the end though,
It’s my heart in pieces
The world’s a funny place
You do your part
You hold up your end of this unspoken agreement
Only to find yourself alone
Signing on the dotted line with no witnesses present
I hate empty words
…..Empty actions even more
Why allow me to fall for you
If you weren’t ready to catch me?
Why present those words
If you weren’t ready to be responsible for them?
Those four letters have become my enemy
My heart has become my burden
And you have become nothing
This is my indifference
This is my end of the road
My hands are wiped clean of fighting a losing battle
I’m fighting for something that I never had the right to call mine
Or that was never mine to begin with
Not even sure anymore
It’s just taken me this long to realize it
