The Truth Is…

---

The day we met,
You stole my heart…
I never suspected, then,
That we'd fall a-part.

I fell in love;
You fell in lust.
You played on my emotions,
And abused my trust.

Now, I'm trying
To walk away.
I'm trying to
Make it through
Each successive day.

And here you come,
Crawling back,
Like the kicked puppy
I left you for,
(Only you were never as cute),
When I finally realized
That I deserved
So much more
(Than your bullshit).

I'm not broken,
Only damaged.

Now, I'm trying
To walk away.
I'm trying to
Make it through
Each successive day.

I used to be naïve,
But stupid, I've never been,
And so I'm shutting the door
Behind me,
And holding high my chin.

You want me – too bad
I want someone else.
So, frankly, you can
Kiss my ass.

I'm telling you now:
(I'm not broken, only damaged)
This is not the end,
And this fear of mine
As all else, shall pass.

I'm a big girl, you
Haven't ruined me, yet.
I'll move on, now that you're gone.
So go on, already, and get.

(The fuck out of my life).
