I stand in front of the mirror,
Looking at the craters you left in me,
Wondering what you’re doing with the pieces of me you took.
I see your smile everywhere,
And I haven’t seen mine anywhere,
I hope you find mine one of these days.
Now I know-
You weren’t putting on a show.
You were just always picture perfect.
I’m sorry for assuming you’d always love me.
I’m sorry I only feel guilty because my bed has grown cold.
I guess I’m a little selfish.
True, I loved to play pretend, but,
I could never play the damsel in distress.
You make a damn good hero, though.
On cold, rainy days,
I wonder about you.
And I wish I could’ve amounted to what you thought of me.
You loved so many people,
I’m sorry I spent all my time competing.
I’ve always wanted to be number one.
You spent your time telling me about everyone’s faults,
I spent my time wondering what wrong things you saw in me,
I wasted my life away, trying to be perfect for you.
Sorry I’m so high strung.
I always worried you’d leave me,
You’re a bit of a wanderer.
I made you so happy,
I’m sorry it was through lying.
I’m sorry for being deceitful.
Sorry I could never understand,
You have a bit of a broader perspective than me.
I’m so sorry,
I could never follow through.
I’ll spend my whole life,
Trying to make it up to you.
