    Look inside my heart
    and tell me what you see.
    Does it bother you at all
    to see the pain you caused in me?
    Look inside my heart
    and tell me if you feel
    the broken heart and sadness
    that you made to be so real.
    Look inside my heart
    and tell me if you can,
    will this emptyness you see
    be filled with you again?
    Look inside your heart
    and if you can truly say
    that it doesn't bother you
    then I'll just go away.

    This piece is poignant but also speaks to a level of maturity in knowing that you deserve better and knowing when you're not getting it.

    You feel that surely, if he cared one iota about you, if he knew the extent of the pain, surely he'd care... Walking away can be heartbreaking in and of itself, but sometimes, necessary. Emotively expressed to a "T".

    You captured that moment to a T. what an excellent emotional-filled expression
