Not Today

It has been a while
since I’ve sat down to write. 
It just has seemed lately,
that nothing has gone quite right.

There are so many emotions
streaming through my head.
I can't seem to control them,
so many things were left unsaid.

I let you into a place 
few have ever been.
But after what you did 
the line you are walking is thin. 

I thought I could trust you
what a silly girl I was.
In the end you hurt me
like every guy always does.

Fool me once shame on you.
Fool me twice shame on me. 
I feel so stupid
the real you I didn't see.

You made me believe
you weren't like the rest.
But in the end you turned out
worse than I could have guessed.

I tried to see the good in you
and I did for some time
how could I have been so silly 
to think maybe you could be mine.

I really can't believe
that I fell for your tricks.
There is simply no denying,
good and evil just don't mix.

I feel so stupid 
that I could not see, 
what a jerk you really were
and absolutely wrong for me.

I should have listened
to what all my friend said.
“He's no good, watch out,”
but I couldn’t get you out of my head.

I guess they were right
that is so hard to admit. 
You had me in a choke hold
like a drug I couldn't quit.

It has been hard 
not thinking about you,
but now I understand
it is the right thing to do.

I'm done wasting my time 
on someone who isn't there. 
I don't need you in my life,
I need somebody who cares.

So this is my final goodbye
I think I can finally say. 
I deserve so much better. 
I won’t be thinking about you today.
