Goodbye

Remembering the happy times
The precious moments that were
Laced with lies
As I’ve come to realize
Our story was destined to
Die
My heart’s hope
Was that our journey would
Fly
Over the blackish blue clouds
Marring the thundering
Vast
Sky
Because my love and faith in you
Was painstakingly
Genuine
But you slapped me across the face
Drowned me in reality
Not caring what your cruel words
Did to me
You tore me apart
Not thinking of my heart
As you trampled the most
Vulnerable parts of
Me
Into inconvenient
Dust
Swept away under a rug
Woven from your ignorance
So here I am
Not broken
Just worn
I suppose the fire inside of me
Truly expected more
From someone I gave so much
To
I’m coming to terms
That I am no longer with you
That’s a fact
One that may save me in the end
From the twisted version of you
That I had never truly knew
For I had never wanted to
Accept that such a dark part of you
Could exist
You never knew me
In the way I needed you to
Never cared for the person
Who so truly loved you
So now what I must do
Is take the lesson I’ve learned from
You
And Journey on my
Own
Learn how to
Fill myself up with simply
Me
Destroy my insecurity
With self confidence and
Respectability
So no one like you
Can ever tear me down
Again
I’ll build my walls high
Support my own heart
And never again
Will I fall for some
Masterful plot
To steal my joy and turn my life
Into an excruciating
Terrifying ride
For you to watch
For your own amusement
And now it is time
My heart and soul have realized
To say
Goodbye
I’ll remember the good times
I’ll remember the bad
And
The next time we meet
I will be strong
Leaving you with a
More distant me
One which better suits the
Reality
Of this situation we now must
Face
But for now
Goodbye
I’m done with the lies and
Games and
Hurt
It’s over
It’s done
A beautiful
Painful song
Cut short in the middle of a
Crescendo
How would it have ended?
Now
We will never know
The conclusion of this
Tragic lullaby
We must simply cope with one
Foul
Bitter
Final
Note
Goodbye.
