but I need to say
these words aloud:
when you came around
I thought I knew so much
but you showed me what
I never knew.
I was searching for a friend
I did not intend for things to go the way they did.
You tried your best
to take advantage of my brokenness
you tried to be more than friends
when it was more than I wanted or needed from you.
This is me moving on,
leaving the lies you said behind.
You are so disturbed,
you took so much from me
but I am still me.
This is something that’s been on my mind
for so long
and now I have the words:
I will not be treated as you treated me
I will not be talked to the way you spoke to me ever again…
