I took for granted that honesty meant
I stupidly told you everything
Everything that would hurt you
Tear you up
And spit you out.
Careless with the love you gave me
Flippant with the trust you bestowed
Thoughtless about how I carried you
Insensitive about the hurt words could hold I didn't deserve you
And my punishment shall be
Knowing I had you
And it was I, who
Took you from me.
