you and me, we could have
been something.

you were long ago. before i ever
turned into this careless,
heartless thing i am today.

i was fresh and innocent and
i thought boys were absolutely beautiful,
thought you would catch me when i
stepped off the edge, ready to
float down into your arms.

i was fucking stupid.

you just wanted to hurt me, darling,
and i understand that now. i was
a game for you to play. a brand new toy.

when i found out, i was devastated, but
i'm over it now. i get it. i'm okay with it.
honestly. i really am.

but still - i stand by my conviction.
if things had been a little different, if i had
been prepared for the world, if you had been
gentler with me -

you and me, we really could have been something.
