Where I Went Wrong

This is where I went wrong...
You see I don't need you,
But I want you,
I wanted you so bad that I began to think I needed you,
This became the truth to me,
So I internalised MY truth,
Which was really a lie,
A lie fed to me by lust,
And an infatuation I found difficult to shake off,
The excited little girl within me didn't want to let you go,
So I held on,
Believing I had to settle for something my mind began to accept that I needed,
But my heart refused it,
the eyes of my heart were opened,
And then I realised where I went wrong,
You were what I wanted,
Not what I needed,
I should have realised long ago that,
The love I was looking for in you
Was already in me...
