Without Words

Am I really the selfish person you think I am?
Someone who destroys lives,
And relationships,
And just walks away?

A stupid mistake.
I’ve apologized a million times for what I did,
What I’ve done,
And what I more than likely will do.
Yet it seems to never be enough for you.

When we argue,
I am always the one who has to apologize.
You call me the coward.
You say I’m the bad one
Because I’m too “chicken s***.”

I love you more than words can possibly describe,
But I will always put myself before everyone else-
No matter how much I care for you.

You’ve helped me mold myself into who I am today,
And I owe you a lot.
But I don’t think I can be your friend anymore.

I can’t always be the one to apologize.
I can’t always be the one to give in and surrender.
You think I’m selfish?
Try looking in the mirror sometimes.
You’re too vain to step down off your pedestal
And apologize.

It’s always going to be my fault when it comes to you,
And I’m tired of it.

Like an epiphany from the gods above
I’ve realized
That I simply care about you no longer.

I’m going to cry.
I’m crying now.
But I will survive.

I always do,
And I always will.
