Please come back...
I didn't mean it.
I didn't know I'd done it.
I never wanted to hurt you.
I never wanted to push you away.
I don't want you to hate me.
But I knew...
I knew you had always thought I was strong.

That nothing could ever truly harm me.
Despite our intelligence, we weren't as mature as we thought.
We were still fooled by that cursed "Teenage Invincibility" mentality,
And Lord, we were mistaken.
So when I suffered, I turned away.
I didn't want you to see me;
Didn't want you to know of my pain.
I know better now,
I learned I was... "wrong".
Something short. I finally found the words to start. But I know I'll never have the courage to say them to you.

Have a great Christmas Eve...

When meaningful relationships turn sour, sometimes it's best to just let that person go. But you have to know in your heart, that the person your letting go of deserves it. To quote a movie I recently watched, "We accept the love we think we deserve" As you get wiser, you will learn that you deserve better.

Thanks so much for the great comment and support. :) This stemmed from the last in a series of bad relationships. I realized that since I'd always been the steiner one, I pushed an amazing friend away because I didn't want to scare or worry her. Now that I need her, I can't seem to tell her or reach out at all. But I'm slowly building up the strength and courage. :) Thanks once again for your support, and happy holidays!
