Never

Too many years I spent mourning over you,
And I knew all along that you would never love me,
Remember when I told you how I felt?
Remember what you said,
And what you did?
Never have I been hurt by anyone as much as I was by you.

Just once, I would have liked you to smile at me,
Or to ask me,
How I was, as though you really cared.
Never have I been hurt by anyone as much as I was by you.

Reckless words you threw at me,
One by one, they beat me down,
Because I cared too much about what you thought.
Everything you said made me who I am,
Reaching out to the first person who wants me,
To release myself from the crippling loneliness I feel.

When did I ever hurt you?
I didn't deserve such unfair treatment from you,
Let alone all the words which hurt so badly.
Say it again- tell me what a nasty bitch I am.
Only this time, don't forget that your opinion doesn't matter anymore.
Never have I been hurt by anyone as much as I was by you.
