Regret

I’ve cried myself to sleep
every night of this week.
And it’s hard to believe
you’ll ever be there for me.
I’ve tried begging you
and wishing that you knew
this wasn’t what I needed,
but no words you’ve heeded.
There’s nothing more to say
and I pray that one day
you look back and realize
the piece of me you jeopardized.
And I hope it was worth it
and that you never forget
what you demanded me to be
but never wanted to give me.
