You were my home.
I could look into your eyes for only two seconds
And you knew how heavy the world weighed on my shoulders.
You grabbed my hand
And you lifted a little bit of that weight.

But then she came along
And she swept you off your feet
And you didn’t think twice
About letting go of my hand

After years of promises
After telling me a million times you’d always be here
After swiping the tears off of my face because I was scared of ending up alone
After making plans for our future
And promising to never let go of the past

You dropped my hand
And the world fell on my shoulders
Heavier than ever

You carry my deepest secrets
I gave you a piece of me
So fragile and vulnerable
You can see the cracks with your blind eye

But you decided to look away
And to drop me, like old garbage

And the worst part is
That you can still fix it
The most heartbreaking, brain-shattering part
Is that you didn’t break me enough yet

And I know
You will stab me
You will hit me
You will ruin me

Until I finally realize
I’m broken
Into enough pieces
To say my last goodbye

And to be able to pronounce your name
Followed by the words
I don’t care anymore.
