If it is something I said or did, tell me,
for I can’t take this distance anymore.
You act so cold and emotionless,
but I know this charade of yours like the back of my hands.
Reminiscing over the memories we created,
thinking about the time together we spent,
I can’t help but ponder over the snapping moment,
where the castle of cards we built, tumbled over and fell.
The farther you moved from me,
the more my heart sank.
My stupid mistake and my blind faith,
kept me wishing you’d come back.
You kept gaslighting me,
but this term was not well known then.
You said I had a flair for the dramatics
when your mixed signals made me beg.
Tears were shed every day,
you pretended you did not care.
I gave you my heart to keep,
and you ripped it right out with its chords.
My immense faith in love was so strong,
I didn’t see the red flags all around,
it wasn’t your fault but mine, for I loved you,
and one-sided love is the greatest killer of them all.
