"there's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light, and i'm frightened by those that don't see it" ~the avett brothers, head full of doubt


You didn't answer
Which leaves me no room for doubt
It might've workded if I had tried
But what is love if it's forced?
I'm sorry for hurting you so
I held you close but had no idea
That something was building inside of you
Something that I couldn't take
Plese don't let it scar,dear one
Because I'm not worth the pain
You'll forget me and go on, my sweet one
And it won't be easy for either of us
But it will happen someday
And until then I hope you remain
Because I still need this friendship
You know I love you boy,I do
Just not enough to be what you wanted
Life will be beautiful if you let it
Don't change who you are, stay true
No matter how much you think that's what they want
It's not worth it, I see you, know how you think
But please believe me when I say, you don't need to be anything for them
If these are the last words you remember
Then so be it
I'll pick up your heart and give it back to you
Just promise me you'll let someone put it back together again
You know me well enough to see
That all these words are real

wrote this as sort of a letter to one of my best friends that was falling for me
