Never Lasts

Lately, I’ve been, I’ve been losing sleep

Dreaming about the things that we could be

That’s what you said to me that day. I guess I found you charming then, not anymore. Looking back, there was a voice in my head telling me this wouldn’t work, I didn’t listen.

For months we were captivated with each other, spending every available waking moment together. Everything seemed perfect, we were living in our own utopia.

Then she came along. She was everything I wanted to be and more. She was perfect and you knew that. Suddenly it seemed that I was being forgotten, becoming only an afterthought to you.

You still stayed though, said that you loved me and for a while it seemed like everything would be okay. It seemed like we would still work together, I was wrong.

You started staying out late, saying you were busy. You blew me off, told me you were tired but that you would see me soon. We were constantly arguing, always finding things to fight about. I tried to think nothing of it but I was almost sure of it.

I realized how far apart we’d drifted, I simply wasn’t enough for you anymore. I shouldn’t have let it go on for so long when I knew something was wrong. Maybe it was my fault, maybe if I’d tried harder you wouldn’t have left.

“Well, good for you, you look happy and healthy

Not me, if you ever cared to ask”
