Where Did We Go Wrong?

Published: March 2016

I never wanted to lose you,
Even when the silence was so strong. 
I needed your touch, your kiss.
Where did we go wrong?

Was it when his love swallowed me whole?
Or when that girl caught your eye?
Was the blame passed around?
Or was it just mine?

When you walked away
I felt broken and weak.
He caught me crashing.
He helped me to my feet.

I needed relief from missing you,
And before I knew it I was losing control.
I was going too far.
He was going too fast. 
I never knew this feeling would last.

I wanted to be with you.
I needed to feel your touch,
But no matter how hard I tried,
I was hurting him so much.

I walked away from you,
Not knowing of the pain to come,
But knowing you weren't coming back,
Now he's the one I'm running from.
