The End - Poem by Jade Leven

back when I was alright
you made it seem like I was not
so I cried out that I was alone
reckless and distraught

you took me into your life
told me your past and pain
now I have to confess to myself
that there actually was some gain

I learned about you
and what you went through
that nobody ever told you
you were loved

I learned about so many things
I wish that I hadn't
but now that I think about it
if I had to discover those things
I wouldn't have wanted to
with anyone but you

however much you cared for me
you didn't care enough
to tell me sooner rather than later
that I wasn't good enough

because I could have told you
that I would change
but I wouldn't
in the end

the end.
