Please don't hold it against me.

It's not you it's me

by betweenus

Please don't hold it against me, I've decided to let you go

I'm cold and dettached and uncaring, I just thought you should know

I've never even said I love you in my life, I'm broken that way

But every cell in my body is screaming at me, begging me to stay

But I can't, I won't, you see, underneath all this masks, I care too much

But don't you get it? This whole thing is bound to blow up, after all, everything always ends broken under my touch

Please don't hold it against me, this hurts me more than it hurts you

You've given me so much already, all the human intimacy I never even knew I craved, all these words are true

For a second there I thought you could fix me, but you can't fix what's always been broken, right?

So I refuse to be the darkness that'll eventually extinguish your light

I'll never tell you this, but I love you, and that is the only reason why I'm walking away

In hopes of sparing you all these tears that if I were to stay, you'll definitely and up crying one day

You deserve so much more that I could ever promise, more than I could ever be

So please don't hold it against me, when I say it's not you it's me

Dear 16 year old me
What I wish I could've known back when I was 16

I wrote a story/poem/essay on cheaters. In it, I pointed out that all cheaters say, "It isn't you, it's me". Yours may very well come from a different place but it so often means, "I'm looking for something better, or I have already found it." I can't even count the times it has been said to me. One week I had it said on Monday and again by a different girlfriend on Thursday. I digress. This is very poignant. It brings on a heavy pathos for the person who feels so broken that she has to destroy everything as part of herself fulfilling prophecies. Great work!
