Growing Up

I gave up on you

Gave up

On the future I wasn’t patient enough to turn

Into today

On the past I too afraid would turn

Into yesterday

I gave up on the chance you would see me

In a way no one has before, or probably

Ever will

I gave up

On the hope that our relationship would be

Better than the ones I’ve had before

The broken misconceptions of togetherness

And ill-founded recollections of loving

I gave up on giving you a chance

To prove you weren’t like the others

I was okay just being friends, never more

I was fine with hearing from you whenever

Never more

I was comfortable in knowing

You might be there

But most disappointingly

I gave up on myself

Never trying to do better

Believing better was never probable

Only possible
