“I know what I want.
It’s always been you.”
You asked me what happened to make me so broken. You asked why I pulled away. Why I pushed you away — or tried, anyway. You asked if I wanted you to leave. You asked me if I loved you. If I wanted to be with you.
I knew what I wanted. You. I just wasn’t sure I deserved you.
So I was honest. I told you everything I felt. Everything I knew. And hoped against hope that you would stay. Because I needed you. You have no idea how hard it was for me to do it. But it was true. And no matter how many doubts I have floating around in my head, or whispering from the shadows in my mind, I know what I want. It’s always been you.
