Read this, when you can no longer hold on to Love

Read this, when you feel you can no longer hold on to love


I used all my energy trying to make you love me,
I answered your calls in the middle of the night,
even when you ignore mine by 9 pm,
I accepted all your flaws and respect all your decisions
yet you refuse to love me at my best.

I was weak to make you feel strong
I never allow you to see my tears,
I never get angry when you ignored my texts
I never felt insulted when you treated me like an outsider
and then twisted the situation to make me look like the bad guy.

I saw your worst sides but I wanted you,
I made you my priority
because I never saw the need of playing games
I wanted you to feel loved,
I wanted you to know how much I care.

I gave you the benefit of the doubt
when you told me my words turns you off
I acted like everything was fine,
even when I was secretly falling apart.

I’m sorry my best wasn’t enough for you,
maybe I should have pretended to be someone else,
just maybe you would have accepted me,
or maybe I should have shown you my worst
maybe things would have turn out different,
or Maybe I just need someone who will accept me for who I am.
