If my writing can make even just one person feel a little worthier, a little less alone, (or entertained) for even a few seconds, that’s enough for me.

I don't want to cry for you anymore

I'm trying to love you, 
But you make it hard. 
Whenever you make a mistake,
You put it on me

I cry for you. 

Whenever you are
angry, 
I blame myself. 

I cry for you. 

When you tell me you used to be 
happy
But you aren't anymore, 
Because of them. 

I cry for you.

When you mock me,
pick out all my flaws, 
I'm saddened and I cry. 

When you say I hurt you, 
I don't know
what to do but cry.

​I don't want to cry for you anymore. 

I still love you,
but my tears don't mean anything to you, 
so I'll save them for someone else. 

I won't cry for you anymore.

    Wow. This piece is heartbreaking. Is this based on a true story from your life? Anyway, it's very relatable, and I think, at some point, we've all felt this way about someone.

    I love your repetition, and it's a sad yet empowering piece. I hope this didn't actually happen to you, but if it did, I'm glad you got over this toxic relationship.
