This Is Why You Stopped Hearing From Her

God & Man

You stopped hearing from her because every time she reached out to you, you picked and chose when to answer.

You stopped hearing from her because she got tired of sitting by the phone waiting for you.

She got tired of putting faith into someone who just constantly let her down.

You stopped hearing from her because every time she tried it never felt like enough for you.

You stopped hearing from her because all you did was take her for granted.

Like the love she gave wasn’t something to be valued.

You stopped hearing from her because you stopped appreciating her. You stopped reciprocating. If you cared you stopped showing it.

You stopped hearing from her because it was always her keeping the conversation going and she got tired of it.

You stopped hearing from her because she couldn’t keep figuring out how you read you when all you ever did was confuse her.

You stopped hearing from her because she got tired of the games you were playing when all she ever was, was honest.

You stopped hearing from her because she was tired of the excuses. She was tired of the lies. She was tired of every apology that shouldn’t have been said in the first place.

She was tired of being let down and disappointed by you.

You stopped hearing from her because she couldn’t keep investing time and emotion into someone who was simply taking all she had to give.

You stopped hearing from her because she realized a long time ago no matter what she did she wasn’t going to be able to convince you to care.

You stopped hearing from her because you hurt her more than she liked to admit.

And instead of explaining herself she just stopped.

She pulled away in hopes you’d notice.

She grew silent in hopes you’d finally be the one to say something.

She walked away missing you with every step hoping you’d tell her not to go.

But you didn’t.

You stopped hearing from her because she realized she deserved more.

You stopped hearing from her because she realized she deserved better.

You stopped hearing from her because she was finally ready for someone to love her back and she knew she’d never find that with you.

So if you begin to notice her absence. If you begin to miss the conversations. If you realize you miss her company when you’re alone. Remember she didn’t ask for much from you.

But you stopped hearing from her because you didn’t realize what you had when you had it. TC mark
