The longing I felt in months gone past,
I’m over my feelings for you at last.
Though once I thought, we’d surely wed,
My feelings for you are now truly dead.
You left me abandoned and feeling so small,
You walked away, and left me to fall.
The game of love played, I lost and you won,
And all that I lived for suddenly gone.
I dwelled for a long time outside of Hell’s gate,
For as deep as I loved, I found I could hate.
The games that you played I watched from afar,
I used to think you were a rising star.
And now as I watch the games that you play,
I’m glad that you left me all alone on that day.
I sat for a while, alone, drenched in tears,
Hearing the voices of all of my fears.
Along came another, extending his hand,
Coaxing me back to the living land.
His love like a salve, soothing my pain,
My heart and dignity, he helped me reclaim.
And now I can say, with you I am through,
As I watch with disgust, you being you.
