Causing you heartache
was never my intention,
but I lacked the courage
to show you how much
I needed you. So you left
to find someone
you needed instead.

  1. Left to find someone more courageous I guess. Often in life, we leave the people we deem to be lacking a certain quality. And in leaving that person for the said quality, we often juxtapose how we ourselves didn’t use our knowledge and experience of the quality to help the other person.
