I Shouldn’t Have Done It

I know I shouldn’t have done it,

but it was so easy. It just felt right.

How could I stop myself from sliding

into something that felt so natural?

Love had me in it’s grips

and there is no escaping.

One look from you and I knew.

I knew that I was powerless.

I knew I would succumb to you.

I knew that you were the one.

But I didn’t know how much it would hurt.

I didn’t know how it would kill me

to realize you’d never feel the same.

I didn’t know it would take over my life.

Why did I have to fall in love

with someone who could never love me?

You broke me and I’ll never be the same.

  1. Probably not “the one” if they feeling isn’t mutual…just sayin’. Real love takes time, experience, and dedication, and has the staying power that crush love/infatuation doesn’t possess. I remember this feeling well, though, the feeling of heartbreak, of loving a person who could never love me. It hurts; it heals, too. There is no point in pursuing someone who doesn’t feel the same way. In the moment, it feels like the end of the world. But it’s not.
