I never understood why you did what you did.
Did it make you happy to know that you’ve hurt me?
They told me to forget about it. It’s all in the past. Move on. Everything will be better if you don’t think about it.
But I couldn’t forget it. I couldn’t forgive you. You hurt me and I couldn’t let it go.
I shut you out of my life. I thought that the best way to forget was to pretend you never existed.
But I couldn’t live that way forever.
And so, I forgave you.
I still don’t understand why you did what you did.
You’re forgiven. But the bruise you left will always be there.
The black eye you gave me will never disappear no matter how hard I try to forget.
