And sometimes I just need to be alone;
so I can cry without being judged,
so I can think without being interrupted,
so I don’t bring anyone else down with me.
The reason why I don’t talk to you anymore
is because I keep telling myself that
if you wanted to speak to me, you would.
I may have lost someone
who didn’t love me, but
you lost someone who
truly loved you.
When you love someone…
truly love them, friend or lover,
you lay your heart open to them.
You give them a part of yourself
that you give to no one else,
and you let them inside a part
of you that only they can hurt
you literally hand them the razor
with a map of where to cut
deepest and most painfully on
your heart and soul.
