It would be easier to hate you.

For all of the blood,
and all the sweat,
the tears, and long nights lost to wishing
the easy road was always there
I could have given up in an instant
could have let go of it all
let go of my wishes
closed off my doors
never called you back
let go of you and what I know of love
but that would have been a lie
one that I could never live with.
no one may have said
relationships were supposed to be easy
but your flaws are not mine
and mine are far from yours
I have never chosen the easy road
and it tears me apart to know
that you have.

The road less travelled is mine
