I wasn't going to do the writing workshop this week, BG has been poorly and I don't feel great. But I read the prompts again today and this is what I wrote.

Why don’t you love me?
What did I do wrong?
Did I hurt you?
Did I Disappoint you?
Was I not the person you wanted me to be?

Sometimes in the middle of the night I cry for you.
You left me and I still don’t know why.
I loved you, wasn’t that enough?

Your rejection turned me bitter and twisted.
I drank to hide the hurt.
I partied, I danced, but the pain wouldn’t go away.

Now I feel numb.
I try not to think of you and how you left.
It kills me inside to know I wasn’t enough.
I little piece of me died when you rejected me.

You left and I never want you back.
