“I gave up everything in hopes
of a future with you.”
I’m not perfect, and I never claimed to be. But I listened to my heart instead of my head, believing that fate would bring me someone that would sweep me off my feet.
So when I found you, I thought I was home. I jumped, and fell, without thinking, because I was so certain you would catch me.
And I tried to make us work. I tried to make us last. But something was always pulling us apart. To you, I was a convenient distraction, and you failed to realize that I gave up everything in hopes of a future with you.
