"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear."
-Mark Twain

I know you know me
Every little thought
That crosses my face
You can read

Happy or sad or in between
You know them all
My little quirks
And big, big dreams

Together we’ve grown
We’ve learned and lived
Been through the tough and the easy
But I should’ve known

This was coming to an end
It was inevitable
And yet you still know me
You’re still my best friend

So now I’m saying stop
Stop knowing me
I’m done sharing, I’m done loving
So you need to be too

This isn’t a choice
Or an option
I’m leaving, we’re done
You will never hear my voice

You chose her
I know I said you could
But you weren’t supposed to
We were meant to stay together

I thought you would be the strong one
And I only had to pretend
I would still have your love
But in the end I had none

So now leave
No more pretending like you care
No more knowing me
There’s nothing here I need

The author's comments:
This is the trouble with letting people in.

I’ve always had trust issues and when I finally let someone in, to see me vulnerable, they end up using my trust to hurt me.
