Lost Words

by mgirl

You were blinded by my tears. You couldn't hear my cries. You wouldn't listen when I told you enough, no more. You pushed me away day after day; I couldn't live with it anymore. Now I shut my door for the finale time and you say don't go, you can't go on without me, and that you finally realize what you have lost. Your words are lost, goodbye.

Your words make it easy for me to see a picture in my mind's eye. This is a very strong six mgirl, so much is clearly stated in just six sentences.
