Chances have been given 
yet you chose to destroy them
I was patient thinking, maybe 
problems were getting in the way
but you chose to hurt me

From hurtful words to constant oppression,
you kept going
Numb to my feelings,
my sentiments, my thoughts
all this didn't matter

Not even the friendship we built for
the last seven years
I tried for months to be patient 
but every day, you had something to say
to bring me down

At times, I miss you
the laughter and the jokes we shared
but letting go of you changed me
I learned to burn bridges and not tolerate
someone who keeps bringing me down
No longer did I have to hesitate
I could express my thoughts, my feelings

Not having to worry about being judged
No longer did I have to worry about what
you would think, if it would offend you, hurt you
No longer did I need to apologize for epressing my thoughts

I lost you but it was for the best
