I screamed that I hated you, then shut the door. I walked away and ignored the words that you said as you tried to make me stay. You’ve tried to call, you’ve tried to reach out, but all I did was push you away. I gave out signals to put distance between us.
But look a little closer.
When I said, “leave”, what I wanted was for you to come closer and pull me into an embrace.
When I walked away, what I wanted was for you to chase after me.
When I pushed you away all I wanted was for you to hold my hand.
When I gave the signals, I wanted you to close the distance in between.
When I didn’t speak, I wanted you to keep saying the words I wanted to hear.
All I ever wanted was you.
I don’t need you but I do.
I don’t want to see you but I do.
I hate you but I don't.
All you had to do was look a little closer.
