I’m not the bad person you think I am.
I know my actions have shown differently.
I know you’re upset.
I know you probably hate me.
I know you’ve told your friends terrible things about me.
Most of them probably true.
But still,
I can’t speak with you.
I want to explain why I did what I did,
But I can’t.
The only thing I know is,
I can’t be with you.
It has nothing to do with you.
It’s all me.
Sounds cliché, but that’s the truth.
I love you.
And I don’t deserve you.
I can’t bring myself to come back to you after what I did.
I’m a terrible person.
You wanted to forgive me and take me back.
That was what made it more obvious to me, that I didn’t deserve your heart.
I hope you meet someone who treats you right.
Who won’t make the same mistakes I did.
Someone who would love you in ways I never could.
Because you deserve that person.
Not me.
I’m trash.
