Hanging On

It’s been so long since we last talked
It’s been so many weeks…months…
Years have passed by and you still haven’t returned

You told me you’d only be gone for the day
I just didn’t realize how long you were going to stay away
Or why;

What mistakes did I make? Did I say something wrong? 
Because I didn’t mean to
I never mean to hurt you
But somehow, I always screw up

But I know that you still love me-
You have to
Because it’s the only thing that keeps me going, living
In hopes that you’ll come back…someday.

The End
