Letting Go

You were one of the few...I take it back...the one who made my life make any sense at all,
The one that destroyed my evil persona which in result returned me to the proud and tall.
I have never allowed anyone to just creep inside my heart and hold the key,
Nor has anyone besides you melted the ice that imprisoned the good in me.

I can say that you honestly brought out the best of what was sleeping inside me,
During my isolation you could actually sense my gentle nature that most didn't bother to see.
I got to the point to where I wanted to admit I was starting to love you,
But that was before you starting to show your true aura and become brand new.

I laugh at the memories because it was all a dream cause reality wise it was a lie,
And I almost believed that maybe it was because you no longer believed in ties.
But you found a new man...someone who supposedly could do what I could also,
You didn't give me a fair chance or even the truth of what was brewing to give me a clue.

I am a man who has overpowered every obstacle that has tried to bring me down,
A man who will not allow a single person to make him look like a clown.
I've been told that whatever doesn't kill you will make you stronger,
But now I believe what doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger.

You know I have fought myself to get to what I'm about to say,
But...I forgive you...I won't forget but I am passed it all if I may.
I needed to get these words out my head so I may let someone else have a fair chance,
Cause even she understands that I'm not all about getting in some pants.

Disregarding my anger I will say I wish the best for you,
Honestly I really hope you do find true happiness with this new "boo."
I'm free from the pain you caused and whatever story you would have to tell,
This is my way of leaving on a good note so I can find a new...
