I told you so...

I know it isn’t my place,
you’re hardly my burden to bear.
But I still check in on you from time to time.
I just want to make sure that when I broke your heart I didn’t leave you lost and in shambles.
I heard you went back to your old ways.
I heard you heard that I went back to your old ways too.
And no, this isn’t my way of getting closer to you.
I guess I finally accepted this thing that stood between us.

A little too late.

No, I’m not still in love with you.
No, I don’t feel like I made a huge mistake.
No, I’m not lying.
I’m pretending. Because thats different.

I’m pretending to believe all of the shit I’m spewing,
because I still miss you.

In ways I never thought possible.

… and their touch doesn’t warm me the way yours did.
… and their scent doesn’t spark something in me.
… and the metronome inside of me marches on vindictively with perfect rhythm, perfect rhyme all a tad too comfortably.
Its not the sporadic chaos that ensued every time you came near.

Who am I kidding?

This is all a cruel joke, because if I came home to you,
you’d just laugh an, “I told you so.”

I told you so...
