Cutting a Little Too Deep

Thu, 12/13/2018 - 15:22 -- 310180

You took the knife and slit your wrists

Saying you didn’t deserve me

And no you didn’t but I choose you

Like a bird chooses the highest tree

To nest in

You didn’t think how it would hurt me

How I would carry the unbearable weight of your choice

I feel my back breaking

And my heart shattering

It’s not my fault

That I wasn’t enough
