The Best Thing That Ever Happened (to you, not me)
The first time that I met you
I had no idea that you would mean
But curly hair and jeans.
You met me in my darkest time;
Full of anger, fear, and pain.
I thought you’d be a friend to me;
A life I thought I’d gain.
For years I trusted you;
My deepest secrets in your care
You always promised that,
No matter what, you would be there.
You were comfort on long, hard days,
A listener in the lonely night,
My protector every single time
The darkness tried to bite
You used to hold me when I cried
And with loving eyes so blue,
You told me I was beautiful
When I thought it so untrue.
We never really dated
Although you said you’d like to try.
I really started falling for you
But now I don’t see why.
Why should I be loving someone,
Someone who does not deserve
The sweet and innocent care I offered
For my heart had no reserve
All you wanted was a girl-
An item to show off.
You never really wanted me,
My life was “just too rough”.
You said I wasn’t good enough,
You took all of your words back.
Now your family hates me
And my character is under attack.
And so begins the battle:
Two people who cannot stand
The sight of one another
Or the memory of holding hands.
People come and go in life,
Promises often break;
But I never thought you’d be the one
To be so hollow and so fake
As you walk away today,
I notice something strange.
My heart no longer longs for you,
Perhaps because of the change
That’s happened in your heart and eyes
It seems you aren’t the same.
Everything is different now
Except for your jeans and curls.
You must know that you screwed up
Because I’ll always be your best girl.
