Me Myself and I

How could I be so blind 
And not see this coming?
Acting as if I'm surprised,
Like I didn't know what was happening.

How selfish could I be?
By not putting some of the blame on me.
How could she be the problem?
When I'm the one who claimed I couldn't see.

She tried to tell me what was wrong;
But I acted as if  I'm not hearing.
Then I got the nerve to be mad at her
Simply because she's mad at me for not listening.

I treated her unfair
Yet I was always telling her, she's my equal.
Allowing my insecurities to treat her 
In a way that made her feel real little.

Knowing in my heart she was faithful 
And that her love was unconditional and pure.
I just couldn't comprehend why
I was acting as if I was so unsure.

I messed up real bad
Now my whole existence is a mess.
Trying to exist without her
Is like living without answers, trying to guess.

How foolish was I?
To allow our relationship to die.
Knowing she tried
I can't even look at myself in the eye.

Tears I cried…
Is worst than the devil in disguise.
So now I find myself without her
Cause I only thought about Me, Myself, and I.

    you know in your heart that you love her. she's the one. but you keep hurting her. why? coz you know what you want. you know that you're no longer happy with her. You can't let her go coz she needs you. You're just waiting and waiting. So confusional! :-D

    Another heart wrencher Ajalon; and a sore spot for some of us. But a beautiful piece none-the-less :)
