Never Know

I wish I meant enough to you to earn your time,
I wish you felt the same way I feel about you,
But, in the silences- I guess we’ll never know.
I wish you trusted me enough to fully let me in,
I wish you thought I was good enough to take the risk,
But you chose to withdraw and shut down,
I wish you were the one to reach out to me,
I wish I wasn’t left here sitting in the aftermath of your hurricane,
But as time rolls on, and I think of you less and less,
I realize just how much being a consideration to you was eating me up inside,
Just how much of my time was spent filling in voids,
I wish you didn’t leave so much space for my mind to fill
I wish you never bothered to waste my time,
And on the bad days, I wish we had never met,
But the fact is, we will never know how any of it turned out because it is all in the past, where it shall remain
