"Do you understand?"

by Percabeth316

Percabeth316 A semi-short piece I wrote recently that's basically just about leaving and starting over.
do you understand?
People say they l o v e y o u
But you don't always feel like they do.
Like when they don't say hello,
Or goodbye.
Maybe you feel like they're just telling you a lie.
They don't put your name at the top of the list.
If only you'd feel truly important.
Do you understand that feeling?
The feeling of being unloved
Or just plain unimportant.
You wish you could feel better.
You wish they'd say you're important
And m e a n it.
They say they do.
But you don't believe it.
You learn not to, right?
You learn to be okay
Without someone telling you they love you
Without someone putting you at the top of their list
You understand you're not the best
But you wish people treated you like you were.
If only they would.
If only you knew when to believe them.
But you don't.
After some time, you just don't believe it.
After they treat you like you're not important,
Why would you believe it if they said you were?
Why would you believe them saying they loved you?
Why would you believe them after that?
You wouldn’t, right?
That's okay.
You don't need to.
Maybe, you shouldn't.
Do you understand?
I hope you do.
I hope you learn that if someone says they love you,
But then slowly stop treating you well
You shouldn't always believe people.
If they make you feel like you're not important
Maybe you shouldn't even be around them.
You might think you need them
But really, you probably don't.
It's not really a good idea.
Do you understand?
When they don't treat you well,
Leaving is okay.
If you second-guess your friendships,
Maybe you shouldn't be in them.
It's good to leave something,
Because then you can start over.
Do you understand that's okay?
Starting over
Might just be the best thing you can do.
I hope that you understand this.
Yours truly.
