    Selfish

    One day
    You’re going to wake up and she’ll be gone
    The bed will be all yours
    Because she couldn’t take it anymore--
    You putting work first
    Putting your friends first
    Putting  first
    Knowing her love language but refusing to speak it to her
    One day
    You’re going to wake up and she’ll be free
    Unbound from the old memories
    She’d clung to
    Because you refused to do anything new
    One day
    She’ll melt into the arms of another
    Who didn’t blame ADD for always missing
    Important dates
    Little gestures
    Thoughtful things
    And acknowledging what mattered to her
    One day
    She’ll be gone and madly in love with someone new
    And still, in your selfishness, you’ll find a way
    You’ll say she’s the one to blame
