Perhaps I loved you too quickly,
Too fiercely.
Perhaps you wasn't ready,
Not really.
Perhaps I expected your walls to fall easily,
Perhaps I ain't who you had hoped I would be,
Perhaps I was too good to be true.
Perhaps you were too.
Perhaps this was supposed to play out differently,
Not be quite so messy.
Perhaps even though I did all the right things,
You still didn't trust me.
Perhaps I thought our love would overcome all the negativity,
That our relationship would flourish effortlessly.
Perhaps it is you.
Perhaps it is me.
Perhaps we are a little too broken,
Perhaps it just seems we are worlds apart as of lately.
Perhaps we cannot fix what isn't there,
Perhaps I just need you to act like you care,
Even if it isn't real,
Just so I don't have to feel,
This way,
Cindy Long
