No matter what they say,

They always leave me.

Promises to love forever,

Just words, nothing more.

Why did I ever believe that you were an exception?

You are no different from the rest,

Just like one candy in a whole jar of candy,

Only difference is color and taste.

People will always leave me,

No matter what I do.

No matter how I struggle to change.

No matter how much I wish for them to stay,

To be with me forever.

To be a loved one, a friend.

No one really cares.

I accepted you as a classmate,

Then as a friend,

Then someone I could trust,

Someone who would never leave me.

But I know the truth, you will leave me.

Your eyes tell me the truth,

You tire of me as the days go by.

I had hoped you were different.

And now, I wait.

Wait for the day, the minute you say that you would leave me,

That you never wanted to see me again.

But a part of you remembers,

Remembers the wonderful times we spent together,

Remembers that I told you the pain of always being left behind.

And you hesitate telling me,

Decide not to tell me, to hide how you truly feel.

But I know, I know and can see,

See the way you struggle to look happy when I talk to you.

And I do the greatest thing I can do for you,

I severe our ties.

But I will never regret our time together.

Never regret our friendship.

I am happy to have met you.

I will always consider you to be my friend.

You were the first one I would tell about a good score on my test,

The first one I would go to when my boyfriend and I broke up.

People will always say that I left you,

But I didn't.

I broke our ties,

And left the choice at your feet,

To stay with me, or leave me.

And you chose the answer I had anticipated.

You left me,

Just like everyone else did.
