Do my tears heal your wounds?

Here I sit crying again,
This wasn't a part of my long term plan.
Over and over you remind me of the past,
I'm trying to be strong but how long will it last?
I'm doing my best to move ahead,
trying not to dwell on everything you've said,
But how can we build a future when you keep dwelling on the past?
You say I'm sensitive, I say I'm harassed.
I hope time heals the wounds I've inflicted
and thing work out as I once predicted.
I know we have issues and problems unresolved,
but you knew all this when got involved.
Is this your way of expressing the hurt you have underlying?
Or does it just make you feel better to see me crying?
