you caught me off-guard.
i took down my walls for you.
i trusted you (too soon).
i forgot all thought of self-protection
until you opened your mouth
and i realized
you never wanted to be my friend in the first place.
you just wanted what i could give you.
and you took it without a word of thanks.
i won't lie that you haven't made me cry;
but once these tears are shed,
you will find my heart still soft
because i choose to forgive you.
i choose to move on.
even if you never want to be my friend.
