But I’m sorry

I’m sorry that I couldn’t make you happy

I’m sorry that I can’t make myself happy

I’m sorry that happiness isn’t a language I speak

But I loved you

I’m sorry if I pushed you away

I’m sorry if I let you push me away

I’m sorry I’m so good at pushing people away

But I miss you

I’m sorry I can’t let you go

I’m sorry that I can’t let go of how I feel

You see I’ve just been let go of too many times to reciprocate

But I free you

I’m sorry if I hurt you

I’m sorry I still cry over you

I’m sorry that I ruin everything I touch

But I’m happy for you
