I should have turned around
that horrible night
I wish I turned around
as you held me tight

instead I laid there
and pretended to sleep
I acted like you weren’t there
and wanted you to leave

how horrible of me
to close off my heart
how cruel of me
to ignore your scars

I watched as your heart bled
and then tried to get away
while pounding your head
as you begged me to stay

when you asked why
I told you your prior mistakes
you started to cry
as I watched your heart break
with sorrow in your eyes
regret was there
but I was so blind
I didn’t even care
