As I sit here alone at night,
I wonder why we had to fight.
I stood by you when you were in jail,
and sent you a hundred letters in the mail.
I made a mistake in the beginning,
But then you told me you were forgiving.
I know now that it wasn't true,
some of the bruises were black and blue.
I should have listened, should have stayed away,
then I wouldn't be a wreck today.
I gave you everything I gave you all I had,
but it didn't matter, you were always mad.
Nothing was good enough so Id try a little more,
and all you did was push me to the floor.
All the abuse and all of your lies,
you couldn't even compromise.
All the tears and all the pain...
no wonder why went insane.
But ever since you've left and gone,
I seem to have more smiles on.
You thought you were strong, but I am stronger,
I don't have to live like this any longer.
No more fights and no more lies,
no more looking in my eyes.
I was fine before you and will be again,
because I have amazing family and friends!
Not like you, you'll be lonely and sad,
dreaming about what you could have had.
But never again will I look your way,
I will only hope for you and pray,
that you find a heart and soul one day!
