I’ll never be her

But…

I don’t want to be her!

I can’t be someone else for you

Just to prove

How much I love you.

 

I love you

But…

You’re not worth the fight anymore.

You’re not worth the tear-stained cheeks

And the razor slits.

You’re not worth the sleepless nights

And the lost appetites

And the vague “I’m fine”’s.

You’re just… Not worth it.

Not anymore.

 

You left me too sore

To care anymore.
