My mistake

My mistake

Lately, I’ve been slipping
Slowly but steadily I’m receding
Listening to sad songs
Relating to the lyrics more that I should
All these scenarios and thoughts
Going through my head
I can’t be that girl again
Feeling like a loser
This has to stop
The doubts and obduration
Maybe I made a mistake
I trusted too fast and fell too hard
My mistake, I thought you were different
Alas I was wrong again
Now I’m thinking if I’d ever do this again
Questions swarming in my head
Am I the problem or you were just that good
I laughed it off and brushed it off
I couldn’t say how I felt
Your reaction scared me the most
So I smiled and accepted it all
Thinking you’d get the hint
My mistake, I thought you were sincere
The memories were good though
Fortunately they are mine for the taking
I broke my rules thinking you’d be it
My mistake for thinking such
Now I’m back at it
Picking up the pieces
Broken all over again
Did I go too fast,was I easy,did I say the wrong things
These keep popping up over and over
My mistake, I thought I was doing fine
Brushing things off and keeping silent
I should have taken the hint, my mistake
Hope you are happy though
I’m not scared to love again
Hopefully this mistake won’t repeat itself.
