Figuring it out


I think I figured it out.

I always knew you'd never want me.
But I thought maybe, in some way,
You loved me.

More than that,
I knew you needed me.

When the night was too dark for you,
You needed me.

When you were happy,
You needed to share it.

When you were scared,
You wanted my reassurance.

Now, you have her.

Before, you could have someone physically,
But they didn't satisfy your mind,
Didn't calm your demons,
Or that terrified little boy.

You needed me for that.

Now, you don't.
You won't.

When you need someone to listen,
It will be her.

She will share your joy and your pain,
Your terrors and your triumph,
And you will drift further
And further from me.

And I will wither and die,
Knowing you're never coming back.
