I Realized Nothing Is Permanent

Somehow, you got into my brain

When you first called me perfect, but

I couldn’t believe it

All the beautiful things you saw

Were never there; for I was filled with

Sadness and pain

I was worthless.

I no longer thought

I meant something.

Everyone told me I couldn’t.

And one day, that was all I could think, even when

You told me I could.

I was a failure.

I couldn’t believe

When you said I was special

I told you not to.

But, you kept trying, even though

I was a mess.

Run away.

I can’t believe you didn’t

The day you first met me

(A year later, I read this backwards)
