Maybe you found something wonderful

In a world where few people do.

Listened a little too closely to negativity

Or to what someone screamed at you.

Maybe you changed your mind

Decided to walk away

The thought of forever lingering

When you promised you would stay.

Maybe honesty isn’t your strong suit

Lying sometimes is easy

When the point of submission is moot.

 

Maybe you’ll walk away tonight

With all your dignity intact

She won’t have the strength to put up a fight

Because she knows you won’t be back.

Maybe she knew this would happen

Because of what you put yourself through

You don’t have to worry about apologies

This, she already knew.
