Walking Out Was All For You

Poetry By: Coralie
True confessions

Something that sums up as much as I can put into words for the person I thought was the love of my life.... If he's reading this, I'm sorry.

A year and six months
Has come to pass
Something was made
That just couldn't last.
I had some good intentions,
And I had some bad,
But let it be known to you
That you deserve more than
A single mention.

You've been my muse,
My heart and soul,
Despite being so young
I knew this love was true.
It's upsetting to know
That we could have had it all
That there was a chance of making it
But I had to fall,
We had to let this go.

Please don't be angry
With yourself for this
I will take all of the blame
I won't ask to be missed.
You have every reason
To hate me
To want me dead
And you may not see
But walking out was all for you.

Try to understand
That being around only brought you harm
And my presence in your life
Caused alarm.
I'm guilty as charged
Of nearly killing you
Not at my hands,
But done by a few
Bitter remarks exchanged
In the heat of a fight.
I see this now,
But never before,
Have I shed the light
To know that I've never loved you more.

You ask me why,
If I loved you,
Would I leave when you need me?
And this can be my only answer
To all of your questions,
I couldn't watch you cry
Couldn't see
You become the ghost
Of the person you used to be.

Please know that I'm sorry,
I'd take it back if I could.
Then you'd never have to worry
Of all that could've been,
What should.
I hate myself
For causing you pain
And this had left me
In a permanent state of rain.

Leaving was the thing
That killed my heart
But never mind me,
Please forget this time.
This much I know is true,
I should have known from the start
That you were too good
To belong in my life.
Braden, I hope you see
That I walked out for you.
