I Wanted To Believe

I trusted.

I wanted to believe in you
That you had changed inside;
I wanted you to be someone
In whom I could take pride

I trusted that the bridge I crossed
Would stand up to the weight;
I knew, perhaps, the danger, and
That I was tempting fate

I wanted to believe, and so
I came here trustingly:
But then, of course, you failed.
How could you not?
You still are
Me
