to the one who hurt me

i say 'please leave'
you say 'i'm staying'
i say 'why'
you say because i've always loved you and always will'
i start to cry and say 'then why did you break my heart?'
you stare at the ground with nothing to say
i stare back at you, the boy i was in love with, the boy who cheated on me, and as i close the door the door i close myself, and say to myself 'never again, i'll never have my heart broken again'
people stare at me on monday what did you say?
i can feel you behind me as you say 'i still love you____please forgive me.'
but how could i? how could i so willingly give my heart to someone who had shattered it before...'no' i say
you try to kiss me i move away, as i move i run, from my school, from my home,
from my life.
but i know i must go back...
i return but in my mind im still running...someone...anyone please help me
i feel as if i'm drowning in a sea of nothingness...soon to be swallowed by those around me to be forgotten falling beneath the surface...
please someone...anyone save me
save me from myself.

you're doing the right thing. when trust is broken like that, it can't be fixed
