I left you alone because I thought you needed space.
I didn’t think you needed me.
I was wrong.
That was when you needed me the most.
I avoided you after that.
I knew I hurt you.
So many times I thought about telling you how sorry I was,
But I couldn't,
I was weak.
I wish I were stronger.
Maybe we would still be friends.
I made too many mistakes though.
I can’t fill all of the ditches I have dug between us.
I can’t put the pieces of glass of our relationship together.
I can’t fill the ocean that I emptied.
Not with all the tears of my sorrow,
Not with all the hurt in my heart.
I’m burning the bridge,
There’s no going back.
I need you to know.
