Blaming You
by Lizette Y. Liendo

At one time I had it all
but one day slowly, 
my world began to fall.

You picked me up
dried the tears from my eyes,
rescued me from darkness
when everything inside me died.

I pushed you away
didn't need your sympathy,
I wanted to be alone
but then I began to see.

I saw the hurt in your face
you really seemed to care,
But I just needed to get away
and everywhere I turned, you were there.

You held me close to you
you said that you've been there before,
and that you've walked in my shoes.

You had the right words to say 
to make me understand,
You said that everyone makes mistakes
and not to blame every man.

You took the time to tell me
that love is hard to find,
that you need to know what you have
before you toss it all aside.

I'm afraid to look you in the eyes
and face the truth within myself,
that even if I'm not sure I love you
I shouldn't blame anyone else.
