You told her that you loved her,
but you left her stranded in the pain
when she needed you the most.
She begged you to stay,
but she was left shattered on the floor,
with tears streaming down her face;
suffocated by a crowd of people
that she’s always despised.
You told her to go,
aware of her ‘Never Give Up’ trait,
because you were less bothered
if she could ever consider the bait.
It might have satisfied your ego,
for she kept coming back for more.
Not because she lacked self-respect.
But because she’s a woman to believe
in the love she possesses
to calm the beast inside your bod.
You should have loved her
for everything she had to offer,
instead you turned her cold
just like your records.
Her heart filled with all the warmth,
millions would have died for,
that she was ready to give away
just like that,
only for your sake.
She was always there,
when you needed comfort and care.
Not because she couldn’t find someone else
but because she believed in her power
to ignite the negligible amount of good in you.
You made her question her worth.
You made her panic and cry
while all she wanted was
to see you happy, and all in smiles.
You broke her down,
every now and then.
She was afraid of turning toxic
because of your poison,
which was good enough reason
for her to walk away.
As she strolls in the thoroughfare,
she thanks you for the love you never gave.
Because you couldn’t see her worth
but she believed in the love she deserved.
So, don’t call her up
with your shattered ego,
for your pleasure in the dark,
or for her love that you let go.
Because she acknowledged the Queen within
who has fallen for her own soul
more than she ever did for your rotten corpse.
