The maze of faces carrying the shattered hearts I’ve left behind in my journey to find myself seems endless. I step around the yelling back to me of what they remember as an excuse, covering my face as if the memories were not true. They expected paradise and the most I ever gave was purgatory, it seems they’ve all gotten coordinated because at every corner all I hear is
Did it matter?
It should have mattered.
No one ever taught me how to need for someone’s love and I certainly never learned how to love someone that needed me. I’m running out of options and turns to take and regardless of how far I run I am caught between your expectation of me and the reality you refuse to believe. I was never going to be the girl who would not forget her first love; I am not the gentle heart with the hard exterior. You are not my savior or the man who’d finally change my ways. I am not a project or a dream come true. We are not a fairy tale and the glass shoe in your hands is two sizes too small.
And yet it seems all of you have gotten coordinated because at every corner all I hear is
I can’t leave you
