My Broken Heart

I would have stopped

at nothing just

to make you happy.

But you rejected me

all the same

like everyone else.

I’m so used to it

by now that

it has left me numb.

I’m sorry I tried

too hard to

keep you around.

I wish I didn’t

drive you away

because now I’m lost.

Inspired by: “I would like to thank you for showing me a part of myself that I had never seen. And I guess these things just tend to fall apart.”
