0211 My Mistake [21 September 1998]

I am broken,
Let me fall.
Leave me to nature’s way
And forget my pain.

My pain,
It is not yours.
It is mine,
And I deserve it.

I believed
The world good.
I trusted you
And paid for my naivety.

But all was my fault,
For I was warned.
Warned by friends
Who knew of the danger.

You dumped me,
As if I was garbage.
You left me
And never looked back.

You walked out the door
I never heard from you again.
I could not believe I could not see,
That you were a rotten egg.

You hurt me,
But I am at fault.
I now trust no one.
Least of all myself.
