Not About You – POEM

This is not about you

But some of it is because of you

Because of what we once were, and all we will never be

Because of the broken dreams and the shattered heart,

both of which has barely mended

Because I can’t pretend like it didn’t happen

Because love doesn’t just disappear

This is not about you

This is about protecting what’s fragile

Allowing the mended to strengthen

Giving it a fair chance of a new start

This is about me

❤️
