You called me amazing.


You said you liked me

and that you didn't

like many people.


You couldn't watch me go

so you drew me back in.


And so began a romance

I wasn't expecting. 


All your sweet sentiments

softened my heart. 


I was so embittered

after all these failures. 


And in the end,

it didn't work out. 


But I don't regret

giving you a chance.


You taught me that love 

could happen for me.


Maybe not with you,

but I'm closer than 

I've ever been.


Someday I will be loved

and all the heartbreak

will have not been in vain.
