Was I a mistake? A quick fix to take her place,
I am not the prettiest, or that smart, 
But I had a feeling, and went with my heart.
I didn’t want a love, gave up long ago, 
Now 18 months on, you’ve let me go.
I threw it all aside, couldn’t believe when you were mine, 
You were different from the rest, or so I thought,
 Kept me around for your own selfish needs, I have too much pride to beg and plead,
I stood by you, and I thought you by me, but you disregarded me in a text message not meant to be,
You claim you care, I’m not so sure, my confidence and dignity are on the floor, how can you say that when I can’t have care for myself? 
You put yourself to the test, to belittle me or push us aside, said it was in your head not mine, 
Your heart wasn’t in it anymore, I wasn’t worth a phone call, wasn’t in your plans, now you have another in sights, I have no energy to argue or fight,
If someone like you, can do this to me, why should in love or trust I can believe,
Better to be alone and by myself, pick myself up, with life I have to move on.
