The regret.


she was right
should’ve listened
not to him, to
her.
he was sweet
i believed it
shouldn’t have
never
leave me
i said
that.
he
obviously
didn’t listen.
he had
hurt
before.
he was hurt,
thought i could fix it.
thought he believed
just like
me.
never did,
never had,
never will.
shouldn’t have believed him,
he did it all again.
he will do it again.
never again,
not for me.
not to me.
can i trust again?
i will
try.
