About a certain someone

Despite fear of rejection
I said what was true
it was all on the line
for me, and for you

at first it went badly
I prepared for the sever
but you dried my tears
and you told me forever

I loved you, adored you
I thought it was safe to feel
you said I was special
but for you, was it real?

You lied to me, tricked me
and then you walked away
my heart was still breaking
you'd lead me astray

you crushed my reality
you bartered my pride
you kept safely hidden
what was really inside

your severe lack of passion
should have been a red flag
but I ignored all the signs
your boast and your brag

I believed what you told me
I was blinded by hope
you moved on so quickly
while I'm still learning to cope

I guess I am over you
and what we could have been
but I hate feeling trivial
though it might be a sin

I want to feel wanted
to have more impact on you
I won't settle for second
or stay with the few

we were best friends
now we don't even speak
what happened..what happened?
what truth can I seek?

how can fire fade to ice
in such little time?
how can you be so different
from my reason and rhyme?

why can't I forget you
like you forgot me?
I've got plenty of options
but you still hold the key

I want to fight, and to hurt you
I want to wage war
because I can't stand being no one
I want to be more

And yet, I still want to hide
to never see that same face
to quietly ignore
this situation, this empty space

I'm frustrated and angry
I need to break a few hearts
I won't once more feel whole
until I've torn things apart

you put cracks in my confidence
you pt doubts in my mind
at least I now realize
I have things left to find

are you really that gorgeous?
or loved? or adored?
why is it your opinion that matters?
and cuts like a sword?

I'll just pretend you mean nothing
Like I mean to you
I'll be polite, I'll be stunning
my heart won't show through

Would I really be happy
if you were forced to your knees?
I don't need you, don't want you
my heart will soon agree

I'll fight you with confidence
I will show you I've grown
you mean nothing to me now
I am fine on my own
