When you saw me at my most vulnerable for days
When you heard my story and believed me as always
When you said that you’d be there if he never comes back
I was not broken, so I said, yet you tried fixing my cracks

When you saw me cry and wiped away my tears
When you’d drive me home every night for weeks
When you waited for me like he always did
You tried to fix me yet I was not broken, I insisted

When you tried asking what I saw in him
When I dodged every question feeling he did not deserve the acclaim
When you assured me that there can be no way he’d hurt me again
You were fixing me thinking I was broken

When all was never said but done between me and him
When you tried so hard to uplift a heavy heart wrapped in chains
When you told me he wasn’t worth it after all
You believed I was broken and fixed me with all your tools

When days had passed and all was over and I’ve moved on
But you did not believe I could also let him go as easily, just like that –
When I was finally happier yet you seemed transfixed with his memory
“Don’t try to fix me (I’m not broken)!”, I said so very loudly
