Candy Reader Poetry: It's Not Me, It's You
There was a time when I questioned myself
Am I really that weak that I could not tear the walls between us?
Am I really that naïve by thinking that destiny was on our side?
Am I really that distracted that I did not see what you really needed?
There was a time when I blamed myself
It was my fault that everything went down the drain
My lack of enthusiasm drove you away
My insensitivity offended you
There was a time when I gave up
Because I was weak to handle the pain
Because I did not have the heart to tell you what I feel
Because my own insecurities took over me
But there also came a time when I realized
I gave up, not because I was weak
Nor because I was scared, uncertain
I gave up because there came a time
When you stopped being worth the fight
