Imagine

I don’t miss you,

In fact, I never want to see you again.

Yet, I feel guilt.

Because I acted irrational,

I was hurt.

My pain caused yours.


Confrontation is scary.

I know it is.

But you cannot go through life,

Thinking you’re always right.

Imagine the hurt you can cause.

I would know,

I experienced it.


Instead of facing your issues,

You snubbed and hoped they would go away.

That just causes more pain.

I apologised.

Yet, you left that apology there,

And didn’t say a single word.


Imagine… for a second…

That you aren’t so entitled,

And that your pain isn’t greater than anyone else’s.

Imagine…

That you saw everyone’s problems as equal to your own,

Without comparisons being made.

Imagine…

Being an adult and learning from your mistakes.


So please…

If you can take anything from the pain you caused me.

Learn from your faults,

Work things out,

Don’t walk away from your problems.
