Because I Loved You
To you, I gave the world,
Yet to I, you saw no such need.
Under the worst of circumstances, we met,
I, being a mess bent on self-destruction, and you, a loner.
To you, I gave you my world,
Yet to I, you gave just a speck of dirt.
Upon our anniversary, it became clear to me the truth.
Whereas I loved you fully,
You loved me not one bit.
Forced unto you, you thought me as a dog.
Your hands held my leash, and you tied it tighter with each betrayal.
You left me worse than you met me.
Upon one year past our separation, I came to realize
Why it was that we didn't work out.
You were not right for me
Nor was I right for you.
You led me on,
And upon realizing the futility of saving me from myself,
You ditched me.
You made me think I was worthless.
You put me down, and hurt me beyond repair.
To you, I no longer give my blessing,
And to I, you no longer give affections.
It is better this way.
I no longer hurt because of you,
And you no longer must pretend to love me anymore.
We were toxic,
Yet from you, I have learned
What a healthy relationship is.
It is not what we had.
To you, I dedicate the next year of therapy,
And to I, you've opened my eyes.
