"Trust Issues"

"It wasn't anything YOU did, I do have trust issues."

Your words still ring through my head

What could have happened

To make you this way

Why couldn't you have told me sooner

The tears I wasted

Feeling like I was doing something wrong

I was doing something

To make you so closed off

I would spend nights awake

Thinking of ways to help things

I was terrified

That I wasn't enough

I wasn't making you happy

I wanted desperately to know

How I could change things

But in the end I couldn't

It wasn't me

But tell me this,

If you couldn't trust anyone

Why couldn't you have trusted me?
