I hate how easily I've been replaced
and how you still own a piece of my heart.
You found someone new,
and now I'm nothing to you.
In fact, was I ever anything to you?
I thought you loved me, that's what you said.
Did you realize that it was past tense?
Well I loved you too, in fact, I still do.
I hold your picture close to my heart,
memories of us tear me apart.
But I won't give in to this pain.
I won't let you take over me, even when you're gone.
I'm not in your life,
so you won't be in mine.
Easier said then done,
but you no what? You're no one.
