I Loved You a Little Too Much

I’ve grown from the days I cried for you

I’ve grown from the days I begged you to stay

I’ve grown from the days I called first

I’ve grown from the days I begged for your attention

It was love, I don’t doubt this

I just regret that I gave it to the wrong person

I spent the better parts of my days wondering why I was never enough

My nights were hours of soft weeping, then loud sobs

I yearned for you each day

I made excuses for you when you didn’t show up

I said it was okay when you replied my text two days later

I loved you, I never doubted this

I just regret that I loved the wrong person

I’ve grown from these days

I loved you too much

I forgot how to love myself

I put you first

Your name was easy on my lips

These lips that never tasted yours

I was too broken but I was bent on fixing you

Because I knew if I could try just a little harder

You will love me

You were my love, I was not yours

Thanks for helping me see this

Now I know who deserves my love. Me.
