Why Must My Heart Be Broken?

“Sometimes the person who you’d take a bullet for is the person behind the trigger” – Taylor Swift

I accidentally found this quote on Pinterest and it so describes what I am feeling at this moment.

I am the one who walks away to keep a fight from starting.

I am the one who keeps my mouth shut while you run yours.

I am the one who takes care of everyone else.

I am the one who tries be the peacemaker to keep others from being hurt.

I am the one who leaves early if it means others may enjoy the event.

I am the one who gives my all so that everyone receives a benefit, even at my own expense.

I am the one you can call in the middle of the night no matter what it is you need.

I am the one who will drive across country to let you cry on my shoulder.

I am the first one to arrive for set up and the last one to leave after taking it all back down.

I am the one you can depend on.

I am the one who always  listens.

How is it that I am the one who is blamed for everything that goes wrong?

Why is it that I am the one who is stepped on as you climb the ladder?

Where are you when I need a shoulder to cry on?

When will you listen to me?

Why must my heart be the one broken?
