How dare you betray me when all I ever showed you was love.
I gave you my all;
my heart, my soul, my body.
I told you my dreams and my fears.
I showed you my family, I opened my home to you.
Time after time you taught me not to trust,
not to open up.
You taught me that trust, loyalty, and respect did not exist.
And each time I thought you had finally learned,
but you didn’t,
and you never will.
So now that you’re gone,
I make no apologies and feel no regret for
how I choose to fix what you broke.
How dare you expect anything from me after
you took away all the hope and magic I believed in.
I will show you silence,
I will not be bitter,
I will be brave and fearless, on my own.
I will prove that after you took everything
I can rebuild myself.
I will find magic in this world and
it won’t be with you.
How dare you expect anything but strength
from the girl who walked away after
staying for far too long.
