A Letter to Myself

Why can't I do anything right?  Why do I always screw up everybody’s life? 
Why is it so hard for me to shut my mouth and let it be?
All I do is hurt people; can never make anyone happy! 
I do what I can but I guess that is never good enough, because the harder I try the worse it gets. 

Why can’t I get anything right? 
Why do I make myself cry every night? Can’t I do anything? 
I want to be able to know why I’m so sad; to understand why I can’t stay happy. 
I want to stop judging people I love and be happy that they at least accept me into their hearts. 

I want to close my eyes and see the face, the one that makes me smile happily.
The one I will see forever and holds me when he says “Never will I leave you, never.” 
But I’m afraid to trust him cause I feel like he’s lying. 
He says one thing. They say another. 

Why can’t he tell me?
Why won’t he tell me?
Is he really cheating?
I want to know, I need to know. 

Does he really love me?
Is that why we can’t get back to how things were?
I want to trust him but I can’t, not with everything he has put me through. 
God… I want to cry.
I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to live this lie anymore.

    He is gone from out of your life. The scar he left hopefully healed and made you stronger. It gave you poetic words for others to learn from. Thanks for sharing
