What We Had Before
I have secrets that you don't know,
you wonder but never ask.
i hate my past,
but you want to know more.
i told you what you wanted to know,
answered all of your questions the best that i could.
now you are looking at me with pity.
tears in your eyes,
you ask "why didn't you tell me?"
i say "i didn't want to see that look on your face."
"the look of pity, of sadness for me."
you told me that i should have told you,
and maybe i should have,
but then everything would change
and what we had had before, we would never find again.
i told you everything,
my deepest secrets that no one knew,
and you betrayed me, you crushed me.
you left me crying in our spot,
said that you found that you couldn't deal with my past,
and my problems.
you watched me walk away crying,
and did nothing to stop me.
i don't regret anything.
you made me stronger,
but now when you come back for my love,
i walk away saying "you had your chance and you don't get another one."
i go to my car after that and smile at myself,
because i am still hurting over you,
and always will be.
But, the truth is,
i found someone better,
that understands and loves me,
he loves me for me.
