The truth hurts, so I lied. “I think we need a break. I love you but just need some space. We’ll be back together soon.” I thought that was the best way of letting you down easy. Months passed. I never called. Then realizing my mistake and calling, I found out I was too late. R.B.
So many times I thought of that day,
When you held my hand
And I walked away.
The pain in your eyes burned through me then
When I close my eyes now, I see it again.
A love so young, so unbridled and raw
Being trapped and confused was all that I saw.
How could I know what I feel today
When I closed the door on your heart
And walked away?
