Falling For It

Heartstring Eulogies

“And here’s the thing, I know what you’re doing,
so why do I fall for it every time?”

There are people out there that can make you feel like the most precious thing in the world. But as soon as they turn their back, you feel empty inside. That’s how you make me feel. One moment you’re here, lighting up my world like nothing I’ve ever experienced. And the next, I don’t exist. I no longer matter. Whether or not you say the words, I still feel that emptiness in my chest. And here’s the thing, I know what you’re doing to me, so why is it that I fall for it every time?

Maybe I can’t help
but hope that this time,
the outcome will be different.
