Good Enough

I need to know why I wasn’t good enough,
Why I wasn’t worth fighting for?
Crossing oceans, losing sleep over and grandiose romantic gestures,
Why wasn’t I good enough to merit your heart?
What was missing for you?
I keep tripping over thoughts of you,
Circling my mind like hungry sharks,
Pangs of emotions I want to abandon,
I shouldn’t still be feeling this way,
Too much water has passed under that emotional bridge,
Yet here I am,
Why wasn’t I good enough?
Why wasn’t I worth the risk?
You made me feel seen,
Yet I made you disappear,
Why wasn’t I good enough?
You owe me that…
