I still remember
Your bone chilling words
Crystal clear in my mind
The sadistic pleasure you got that day
Such a petty reason behind
All that unnecessary melodrama
You shushed me whenever I tried to explain
You got your way
But what did you attain?
A boost to your ego
That you finally proved me wrong
With your harsh words
You didn’t make me weak,
No, you made me strong.
It’s been exactly a week now
Since you broke all contact
I’ve never been so content
With my dignity still intact.
How easily you hurt me
Remembering, the different side of you
It all seems untrue.
All your lies
And all your pretense
stares me in the face
I can’t believe I trusted you for so long
Sick to my stomach,
It’s such a disgrace.
Though we shared a wonderful past
The bond’s now broken
From this never ending nightmare you kept me captive in
I have awoken.
I no more kill myself with guilt
I’m free from your clutches
You probably deserve better
But just know that I burned your memory to ashes.
I would’ve apologized
This time too
Like I always do
But something stopped me in my tracks
You pointed out the things I lack.
And had a mighty good time making me feel worthless
Maybe that was just anger
With a hint of sarcasm
And pent up frustration
But that gave you no right to be so heartless.
I’m finally at peace with who I am
With a handful of people having faith in me
Thankful to have learned this lesson
Even though the hard way
I now, know we were never meant to be.
