You tell yourself that he didn’t mean it.
You tell yourself that you’re going to be okay.
You feed yourself so many lies that even the person staring from the mirror begins to ask questions.
“Everyone shows love differently” you say.
“He has issues – but who doesn’t? He can change.”
We were all born with imperfections and flaws that test our fate.
We all have issues that we bring to our lover’s bed.
But some people – not all people –
just cannot be helped.
It’s not because becoming better is impossible;
they simply choose not to change.
