Canada Day

My rings are in a jewelry box on a coastline far away
And when others ask what happened, I don’t know what to say
I could, I guess, keep mum with an answer so succinct
Yet then no one could comprehend just how long you had me on the brink

I’m watching the waves form and crash as I chronicle our fall
Suddenly I’m distracted by happiness, not thinking of you at all
Why didn’t you love me enough, why didn’t you ever care?
When I tried to speak to your soul, all I got back was a stare

Was I simply not worth it, not precious enough for your time?
It was as if making an effort was some sort of crime
And even now, when I bring it up, you clam up inside
Just like every mundane day we’ve had since I became your bride

I’ve always thought it my fault, like I was simply, inherently wrong
But I can’t curse myself anymore, I’ve blamed myself far too long
I knew it back then, but I’m finally accepting it now
We all have our own ways to love, but baby, you don’t know how.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
