Hindsight

In hindsight I know

You didn’t deserve me.

But I feel I deserved you–

Every bit of joy,

But more times than no

I feel I deserved every bit of pain;


In hindsight,

I wasn’t ready

Just as I told you

In words you refused to hear

Until I was forced to break you

And remake you the victim

So as a villain I could flee–


In hindsight

I needed you

And need you no longer

Grateful for the insight

You left me with me.
