What Were You?

My Broken Heart

Were you just a wall  

where I could leave  

the heaviness of  

my emotions’ footsteps?  

Were you just a box  

for me to contain  

all of my secrets,

lock it up and walk away?  

Regardless of what

you were to me,

what was I to you?  

Was I another headache,

another heartache,

another soul-ache

to add to all the others?

Was I ever good to you?

Did I ever make you happy

even for a moment?

I can’t walk away  

knowing I hurt you

whether or not you hurt me.
