Because I loved you
I thought she didn’t matter.
Her feelings weren’t real,
It was just you and me.
When you left me strained
In an unfamiliar train station
I was scared.
How could you have done that if you knew
I loved you?
Everyone asked me why I went back so many times,
I had no answer except it was
Because I loved you.
You brought me out of my comfort zone
You made me feel alive and adventurous
I loved the thrill of you.
We talked about everything
And you made me happy.
When you consumed so much of my time and thoughts,
I was scared
But because I loved you,
I would have done anything.
The truth was
You didn’t love me and I know now.
I still feel alive and adventurous
But now I can take care of myself.
I loved you but my eyes are open and I am not scared.
