if you asked the ones I left…

maybe they would blame me….

and maybe they would say I was the one who acted selfishly.

I fight with myself and the guilt too easily.

but if they knew how it hurt me to walk away…

how there are days I still struggle to be okay….

loving someone and knowing if you don’t leave…

you’ll be dragged down into the shadows with them…finding no love and relief.

I held on for as long as I could…

did to myself all the things I knew I never should.

and love can blind us in the most painful ways…

leaving you shattered my heart…

but it was killing me to stay.
