What can I do anymore?

Apologize?

Retreat?

Cry?

I've never felt this way about anyone else in this entire world. You make me burst into tears and smile all at the same time. I've told you I love you since I left you so many times but I know I've missed my chance.

I miss out on everything important to me, but I just never let myself believe that you were actually never coming back. Every time you began to slip out of my mind you would plant yourself back. Do you not want me to leave?

I don't understand anymore. What could you possibly want from me? Do you want to torture me? Telling me about the girls you like and the girls you think are beautiful. You thought I was beautiful once. You told me I was beautiful once. Was I just another one of those girls?

You are killing me.

And you don't even care - do you?

I just want an answer. I don't care what it is, just as long as it isn't another lie. If you don't want me please just tell me so I can leave with the shards of my heart you left me with.

You broke me and I can't fix myself. But why would you care?

I'm not your problem anymore am I?
