Misplaced Guilt

You should’ve been here
We should’ve been together
But now she’s gone
And she’s gone forever
How can you live with yourself?
How can you go on knowing you chose someone else?
You aren’t a delight, you are a disgrace

The tears start streaming down her face
She wants to scream, she wants to shout
Instead she continues to hear them out
Each word contributing to her guilt
Slowly wrecking the wall she had just built
Her fortress, her protection
Fallen to natural selection

No, this is not okay
No, it shouldn’t be this way
If only they could understand
Their words are much like quicksand
She is sinking deeper and deeper
All from the guilt they have given her
