The Heartbreaking Kind

Source

Still trying to figure out


How I ever got caught up in that mess,


It was a one sided heartbreaking kind of relationship


That was never meant to last, thank God,


I gave everything to you


You drained me more than I ever thought possible


You used me in so many ways


You hardly ever held me unless it was to make yourself happy


No loving long kisses, well unless you felt guilty for hurting me again


I walked on egg shells around you


Everything I did, well according to you was never done right


Nothing I did for you ever seemed to be enough


You broke my spirit down so bad


It took me years to build it back up


I am so much better now, so glad for that


I would actually like to thank you


I am so much stronger than when we was together


Let someone raise their hand to me now


It just might be their last


I don't spend obsessive amounts of time on trying to be perfect


Or way too much time being someone's unpaid maid


I had my fair share of that catering to you


See I am way to busy now making myself happy


To let someone use me like an old rag


I finally figured out to truly find love


I had to start loving myself first


So if your wondering if I miss you


This should answer any questions you have


But just in case you can't understand plain text


The answer of course is "NO"


See I will never miss you


Because when I was with you


I missed me


I am so happy to have my old self back

Thank you it is actually based on a very bad relationship I used to be in.

Heart-breakingly sad, I am glad that there is a happy ending to it, light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. Emotionally expressive!

Love the ending on this one -- it's amazing how no matter how badly the heartbreak self-preservation usually gets us through. Best/Sis

Good that you found the relationship was not working for you before you lost yourself. Good thoughts and well expressed.

How does one describe a red rose to the blind?
