"I can change,"

The cliché line that is said

Only in books and movies.

I speak it out loud

In a last attempt to reason with him.

"What can you change?"

He says in disgust.

"You can't change your

Lonely,

Pathetic,

Cold-hearted,

Evil soul."

He draws out the adjectives

For greater emphasis.

As if he needs to.

Each words stabs my heart

Like a knife.

What have I done to deserve this?

"I love you,"

I plead.

But he just turns away

And walks out of my life forever.


I honestly don't know where this came from. I wrote this a while ago and found it on my computer. Oh well. :)
