I wonder why it’s so easy for you to make promises while I stay and watch you break them. I wonder why it seems easy for you to distort the truth into lies while I stay and believe. I wonder why it’s so easy for you to burn bridges while I patiently build them for us. I wonder why it’s so easy for you to change and turn into the coldest ice while I stay and give you the warmth of my love.
I did stay. I opened my heart and poured it out until I felt empty and broken. I forgave you because I want our relationship to work for both us, no matter how messed up things were. I was so desperate to fix what was wrong with us, but you never appreciated my effort.
