“Ignorance”

“What can I do,” I asked as I walked down the stairs following her.

“There’s nothing you can do; it’s too late.”

“What do you mean it’s too late?”

“I’m leaving.”

Those were the last words we exchanged before she left.

Forever.

I never thought that it would go that far. I always thought that she was going to be there.

Always.

So when I came home that night and found that she had packed her bags and was ready to leave, I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe she was leaving.

And I couldn’t believe that it could be my fault.

But it was my fault. Everything I had done was what made her leave.

But I didn’t want to admit it.

I didn’t want to admit that I could have done something wrong,
something that made her hurt.

How could I have been so stupid?

I couldn’t understand it back then, but it’s starting to hit me now.

It’s starting to make sense to me.

She left because of me, and I could have stopped it. I could have done things differently, and she would still be there for me, supporting me and giving me all of her love.

How could I have been so stupid?

So ignorant?

How could I have been so selfish?
