Another piece of her heart was gone.
With so much to give, she couldn’t understand why she deserved this.
Her big heart.
Her kind soul.
What made it okay to crush them?
How could she be so easy to walk away from?
…..they always walk away.
Who said it was okay for you to make her feel like this?
You loved her.
You said you’d do anything for her,
yet you turned your back on her.
You made promises you couldn’t keep.
You gave her hope.
Hope of a love she wouldn’t regret,
a love she wouldn’t miss.
You messed with her head.
Just like every other “man” in her life.
She trusted you….
she trusted you.
She stopped eating.
Cried herself to sleep at night.
She was angry.
Angry that she let you do this to her,
that she let this go on way too long.
Angry that she kept pushing the signs to the back of her mind,
because, because she wanted this to be it so badly.
….she wanted this.
But you let her down.
You pushed her away.
You made her feel small,
like she wasn’t good enough,
like she wasn’t capable of real love.
And then you lied.
You lied straight to her face.
You made her believe that there was still a chance.
How dare you….
How dare you.
She deserves better.
She won’t let you have that power over her.
She sees that now.
She’s hurting less.
She’s learning to love who she is.
Her mind is understanding that you were a lesson.
A lesson of the good times you shared,
what she doesn’t want to feel like,
and what she needs to work on.
She goes to bed in peace.
Her wounds are healing.
She can look at herself without being disgusted.
She can see who she is, who she wants to be, and who she’ll become.
She is growing.
She is surviving.
She will be okay.
