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.
