Maybe I don't know yet
Maybe things have changed
Maybe I'm not the one to take the blame.
You did it all yourself, but I just stood there, mouth gaped
As you slowly cut deeper into your skin.
How was I to know that you were going all the way this time.
Your breaths got shortened I realized you weren't coming back
I whispered, "I love you".
You didn't say a word, just lay there staring at me with lifeless eyes.
I could have stopped you and I realize
I am to blame.
