I Thought You'd Catch Me Anyway

You try to break me,
But I won’t bend.
I won’t snap.
You won’t tell me you love me,
The silence shattering my heart.
But I won’t let you see it.
I won’t let you see the tears,
Or the pain,
You have inflicted.
I guess I have no one else to blame.
I fell in the first place.
I guess it was stupid,
But I thought you would catch me anyway.
