Just because you were mean, doesn’t mean I will speak ill of you

Just because you ignored me, doesn’t mean I won’t smile as you walk by on the street.

Just because you didn’t understand my heart, or me doesn’t make me creepy or weird.

Just because you can’t fathom that the world is made of people who care of others, doesn’t mean I’ll stop caring.

Just because you broke my heart, doesn’t mean I won’t love again.

Just because you don’t understand how much I’ve hurt doesn’t mean I won’t heal.

Just because you have Ms. Right Now, doesn’t mean Ms. Right will be waiting.

Just because we can’t be together, doesn’t mean I won’t love you.

Just because I love you,

doesn’t mean I want you.
