I’m leaving…

image

You demonstrated
Time and again,
That you didn’t really
Care about me,
So why are you now
Surprised that I’m leaving?

Why stay where
I’m not appreciated?
Why pretend
To your family and friends
That we’re a happy couple?

My days of charades
Are finally over.
It’s time for you to grow up,
But then again, don’t bother!

Don’t change for me;
Don’t make yourself unhappy
Just to please me,
You’ll only hate me for it
I don’t need that.

Change should only come
From a personal need to do so —
From within.

Do you see now why I must go?
Don’t cry, don’t beg,
Don’t try to reason.
You had many chances
And blew them all.

You are happy here
But I am not
And never will be.
This never was my home,
I was just “the help with benefits” —
Someone to cater to your every need
But always an after-thought to you.

How cruel!
Cruel for me,
But convenient for you.
I know I’m worth more than THAT,
I deserve more than
To be just a placeholder.

Thanks for the fun exciting times,
They created great memories
But you broke your promise to me
And now I know where I stand.
No more stringing me along…
Goodbye.

Fighting Dirty

I promised to never
hold your past against you.
You asked me for a chance
to prove yourself
so I wiped the slate clean —
I gave you a fresh start
and you promised
to do the same for me.

To this day,  I never used your past
in any of our arguments.
I never threw your mistakes
back in your face.
I always held my tongue
and kept my promise
to respect you as a person.
But you reneged —
your word was not bond.

You disrespected me,
called me names,
became violent,
threatened my life, 
then defiled me
in the worst way possible —
You took from me
what I would have given you freely
had you loved me like you promised.

To love,  honor and cherish,
for better for worse, 
in sickness and in health,
til death do us part —
those were the words we vowed, 
but you didn’t keep your promises.
You fought dirty.
You tried to use my past againt me, 
but now it seems
you get your just reward.
It doesn’t pay to fight dirty does it?
