I wish that I could say I'm sorry,
but I know that it will only make you hurt more.
I wish I could give you back the piece of your heart
that you were kind enough to give to me,
but I was cold enough to toss aside.
I wish that I could make things better
for the both of us.
Because even as we've gone our separate ways,
I still hurt when I see you like this.
I wish that I could do more than give you time,
but time will have to be all.
I wish I could keep from messing up,
but I can only help by keeping my hands away.
I broke up with one of the most amazing young women I've ever met a week ago, and it was painful for both of us. I had just found that I wasn't getting what I needed out of our relationship, but I didn't want her to change who she was to accommodate that. Now I'm losing sleep because I've hurt her.
