i write letters to you
i crumble up and throw away
because they never feel good enough –
but i guess that’s the thing….
i never feel good enough.
i never feel good enough for you.
i never feel good enough because of you.
you left before i even knew you.
then you rebuilt your life,
like i wasn’t the missing piece.
you can’t try simply
to make up for the time lost.
you have to try whole heartedly-
it took my whole heart to let you in,
for you not to try.
