A you and a me,
Not so much alike,
But love made us we,
With an oxytocin spike.
You did nice things,
You spoke so well,
We made paper rings,
Love had cast it’s spell.
You fed me attention that I never got,
Made me feel the most special from the lot,
Who knew these were just minutes of happiness,
Soon to turn into hours of sadness?
You loved me for my simplicity,
Then did things you’d have to hide.
Blamed me for your duplicity,
Punched walls, yelled and lied.
Sweet dreams got bitter.
Goodbyes turned bad.
Life that shined like glitter,
Now seemed so sad.
Today I miss you in abundance.
The way you held me in your arms,
As if I’d never experience redundance,
Before I heard your false alarms!
Your lies kept growing like a vine,
And your denials were the black flowers I wore in my hair.
Ignoring every red flag, every sign,
Looking past my heartfelt despair.
A whiff of your scent,
And my eyes get filled to the brim,
Every minute with you I spent,
Flashes before my eyes that are now dim.
You did love, and loved truly,
But maybe your love for it, was more than your love for me.
Stupid me told you it wasn’t your fault,
To save you from the guilt of walking out.
Maybe your honesty was only confined to be proven right,
Even if the things you did were not.
All the fights you wouldn’t ignite,
For the sole reason of getting caught.
Your apologies don’t feel so true,
As if you’ll repeat history as soon as I believe you,
Decorate me with false promises and lies,
Make me fall for you once more before our final goodbyes.
But I’m growing, and growing strong,
When I say this don’t get me wrong,
Like you said your mistakes were destined to be,
I say this ending, you were destined to see.
