We're Still Trying

I kept the shirts you gave to me
I wear them when I need
To feel
Safe

I kept the secrets you told me
Since you've been gone
Nothing's
The same

You only visit me now
In my dreams

Neither of us knew how
To fix things

But we still tried

You kept the letters I gave you
You pull them out
When
You're drunk

You kept your mind on me too
You look for me
In other
Girls

But you only see me now
In your dreams

We don't blame ourselves
Just bad timing

But we still try

Trying to let go is hard when you don't know what you're holding onto in the first place
I'm still haunted by the thought of what we might have been if we stayed
You may not know it but you and I are exactly the same
I may be bitter still, but I look out to make sure you're okay
I know you do the same

I carry your words with me
I hear them when I need
To feel
Sane

You carry pieces of me
You didn't want to leave
But it's all
The same

We're not like we used to be
We're different people

We're not recovered completely
We're not equal

But we try
