You Hurt Me First (A Poem)

I never wanted to hurt you.

I’m sorry if I made you angry or made you cry.

I said what I had to say.

But making you unhappy made part of me want to die.

I promised to love you forever.

For better or worse.

That hasn’t changed but if I crossed a line,

Please remember, you hurt me first.

Maybe I could have approached things differently,

Maybe been a little more sensitive to your needs.

Found a way that didn’t put a wedge between the two of us.

It is, after all, already the world versus you and me.

If I was crude in my approach and even a little cruel

Please forgive me because I never intended to do that to you.

But please also remember I’m not necessarily thinking straight.

Because you hurt me too.
