I felt if you could just understand how much you hurt me all those nights

it would give my pain retroactive permission, free me from my spite,

and absolve you of all blame since your heart with mine puzzle piece fit

and because if you only knew how much it hurt, you wouldn't have done it,

    So sad and heartfelt. Short and so full of pain. Let healing begin.
