It wasn’t because you didn’t call or the fact that you didn’t even write.
It was the fact that you just got up and left, without even giving me a reason why?
Just disappeared out of my life, not even taking out the time to say a simple goodbye.
When you said you loved me, was that a lie?
The feelings you felt, are you now trying to deny?
Was this just a waste of time, was working at our relationship, not even worth a try?
By leaving, was that your silent goodbye?
Am I supposed to feel hurt or confused, do you expect me to cry?
If we should ever cross paths or see each other eye to eye,
Don’t expect me to say a word, not even a simple ‘hi’
I’ll simply turn the other way, perhaps releasing a quite sigh.
Because I didn’t deserve this, I’ve always stood by your side.
I always put you on a pedestal, I always ranked you high.
I always saw you in my future, I always thought you were that guy.
The one I would spend my life with, and felt with out you I would surely die.
But I realize now, that my feeling for you are no longer justified.
You were just a detour in my life, just another person in and out, passing by.
I’m no longer holding on to any type of memory or special times.
As far as I’m concerned you didn’t exist, your opinion on anything that I’ve said,
is worth nothing to me, not even worth a dime.
I’m so much better off without you, matter fact I’m better than good, I’ll be just fine.
