At the drop of a dime, I was always there for you without hesitation.
It doesn't matter what I was doing, who I was with; if you needed me, I came running.
Did you forget all of the times that I spent holding your head up when you were too weak?
Did you forget the shoulder that you cried on for hours or the ear that listened to your every frustration, your every struggle, your every bit of sadness?
Did you forget who was there for you when the rest of the world turned its back on you?
I was always there. No matter what.
Kinda funny how it works, when you need me, I'm important, but when I need you...
You're too busy.
I've spent a lot of time wondering how you could be so cold, so selfish, so caught up in your own world that you couldn't even bother to ask me how I was doing.
I was doing terrible.
I was heartbroken, sad, and I needed you.
Yet you were nowhere to be found.
I had to weather the storm alone, something you were never strong enough to do.
I had to pick my own self up and demand better from myself, the same thing that I once did for you.
I had to build my own strength, in a time where I felt so damn weak.
But I did it, without you.
Now I am stronger, and more importantly, I am wiser.
I now know not to open my arms to those who will never even consider doing the same for me.
I know now it is important for me to stop wasting so much time building people up who insist on kicking me when I'm already down.
I now know how much I mean to you, and how much you value me as a person.
Life is hard. It is only a matter of time before your world comes crashing down around you once again.
And when you look around, desperate for someone to reach out a hand, the one person who never let you down won't be there...
I won't be there.
