I tried not to love you, I tried not to care.
Whenever you called me, I'd pretend I wasnt there.
I tried to ignore you, I tried to be distant.
But you never gave up, you were always persistant.
I told my friends I wasnt interested, and I told myself the same.
But you had all the right moves, and you had the perfect game.
You whispered of our future, and confessed sins of the past.
You once said you wanted me attatched because you knew that we would last.
I said I had been hurt in the past and the wound had not yet healed.
You said that shouldnt stop me and for you I should never yield.
I told you that I cared for you but that love was so hard for me to feel.
You said that you would wait until I realized this time it was real.
All you wanted was a medal and a trophy on your arm.
You never once stopped to realize that after attachment, abandonment does harm.
