I never asked for a life in eternity, nor did I want a place of high stature.
I simply pleaded for a second chance to prove I really cared.
I couldn’t believe it when you turned around and crossed your arms.
I couldn’t fathom the coldness in your eyes.
Was the crime I committed so awfully cruel, so breathtakingly wicked
That I didn’t even deserve a fair judgment? The right to defend my actions?
I watched you walk away, my hand reaching in a vain attempt to pull you back.
I wanted to ask you how badly I had hurt you but you ignored me.
At that moment something closed in my heart, as if a wide open door had shut.
I decided never to question the actions of others, never to care what they thought
Although I knew it would be a bleak existence, a lonely way of life, I didn’t care.
It takes so little to break a heart but it would’ve taken even less to mend it again.
I only asked for understanding. Was it too much for you to give?
