Purposely To Leave

I have made many errors.
Some to correct.
And others purposely to leave.
Caring less if they were shown.
In public meant to be known,
I am far from perfect.
Or wish to leave that,
As an impression to make.
Even in relationships,
Thought to be close...
I'm the first to be able,
To know 'something' is wrong.
And not legit.

'What you sayin'? '

This.
You long left an us,
In your mind to view.
Just to focus on you!
Remember?
I do.
With a doing to leave me,
Convinced.
You sought success.
And stepped on backs,
Holding up a ladder to reach it
Feeling no remorse or regret.

You left an 'us'...
To leave a 'we' behind.
With a seeking to impress.
Remember?
I do.
And I have no regrets,
That you chose success...
Over happiness to get.
And it seems to me,
You're the one...
Seeking to be convinced,
Your pretense to fake happiness
Is not an obvious charade,
Already played on me.
