I Never Meant

Written by: Melissa Gregg

I never meant to make conversation
Each and every time I saw you
I never meant to laugh a little too loudly
At your jokes, even when they weren’t so funny

I never meant to find a way 
To be in your presence every chance I could
I never meant for you to kiss me 
The way you did, the way I did back

I never meant for us to be alone
Saying, touching, feeling, doing
I never meant to fall in love
With everything I’ve ever wanted

I never meant to feel so alive
Becoming all you saw in me
I never meant to show you parts
Of yourself you never knew existed

I never meant to show you my weakness
And fall apart time and time again
I never meant to jeopardize everything
By becoming less of who you saw I could be

I never meant to take your heart
Hold it in my hand, feeling the life pour out of it
I never meant discard it
As I walked away with no explanation 

I never meant to feel so helpless
Weakness becoming all I knew
I never meant to be less than you expected
But I never meant to

Say

Goodbye
