It’s Not Your Fault


It's not your fault.
We can't force feelings,
Not like we force essays
And the door that sticks when it's humid out.
We don't force feelings,
Not like we force smiles
When, really, we're all broken inside.
It's not your fault.
It's not your fault.
We can't make feelings,
Not like we make deadlines,
Not like we make lunch.
And it won't be your fault,
When I finally let go.
It won't be your fault that
You didn't feel what I did, when I did.
It won't be because of you
When I'm smiling.
It won't be what you did
That makes me laugh.
Because I can't hold on forever
I can't wait for days,
Weeks,
Months.
It's not your fault
That with just a word
I would.
I would wait forever.
