The things you said, you cannot take back

They cut deep and that cannot be healed

The things you said, may not be what you meant

But they’re there between us like a rope bridge

This time, one end’s threads are so frayed

That it cannot support it all.


The things you said broke respect

And there are too many shards to glue back together

The things you said, will always be there

No matter how much I try to forgive you

I cannot forget your words,

They’re a sting that will not go away.


The things you said make me wonder about you

Why can you not think of other people

The things you said were not funny

But they made you laugh

They broke my heart in half

And now it will not heal.
