This is how I learn to be independent
In the accumulated moments that you didn’t care.
This is how I grow used to isolation
When I don’t have you around for company.
This is how I grew up
When I call and the dial tone rings then dies
This is how much I need you
And only to realize that you don’t need me back.
This is how I stopped believing,
When promises are mere words spoken and forgotten.
This is how I forget,
When there is nothing enough to remember.
This is how we all fall apart,
When I am always here but you are never there.
