I stare out through the window.
Of course you’re staring right back;
Eyes piercing, like a knife being jabbed into my heart.

I’ve never felt this emotion before,
Not before you came along.

My body tumbles over, like dominos.
Why? Why me? Why this sorrow?

I think about how much I love you,
But now, you take out your anger upon me.

You make me feel like I fail constantly.
I’m never good enough,
Not for you, not for your love.

I just remind myself not to give in.
To be a sturdy building, so I never collapse.
It’s too late though; my foundation was never strong enough.

I’m gone.
