Aa Harvey

I am to blame

I am to blame.



I am to blame for all I have done.

I cannot blame you for the fallen sun.

The rain is not dependent on your independence.

I am to blame for you being gone.



I am to blame for never thinking of you enough.

I am to blame for never loving you truly.

I am to blame; I should have been good.

I am to blame;

You can see right through me.



I have worn a mask to disguise my reflection in the mirror.

It is time to remove the mask;

It is time to see clearer.

The man in the mirror is not a ghost, he is me.

I am to blame for everything.



I am to blame for never changing,

Into what you needed me to be.

I am to blame for you leaving.

I am to blame.

I have to see.

I can no longer blame you,

Because you chose to leave me.

    So hard when that one sinks in.
    Very well expressed but then one has to forgive their self.

    Thank you for sharing
    Much peace and respect

      Thank you for the comment. I have written a lot about love, blaming others for taking their love away, so I thought it was about time I faced the fact, they left for a reason. Maybe the next one won't want to leave.

      Peace, love and empathy.

      Awwww. Beautifully expressed ... but more liberating if someone loves without wanting to "change" them.

        Everyone wants to change something about the person they are with, but really loving someone means accepting their faults as well as their good points I guess.

        Peace, love and empathy.
