Why didn’t you tell me this sooner,
When my heart was aching as I packed my things,
Why didn’t you stop me then?
Why didn’t you tell me not to go?
Why didn’t you offer to talk it out?
I wasn’t important then? ?!?
Where was your hand to pull me back in?
Your embrace to calm the storm that brewed inside of me?
Where was it?
What happened to the I love you’s I needed to hear just because?
Did my cries for this not reach your ears?
I needed this then, I begged for it then. ..
And yet you wait to give it to me now.
Why didn’t you speak up! ?….
Don’t you know words left unsaid carry no weight and yet create a giant empty gap between you and the “couldve /should’ve” been recipient.
