You didn’t hurt me this time.
I didn’t feel anything when you told me you didn’t want to be with me.
I wasn’t sad.
I wasn’t mad.
I wasn’t upset.
I laughed actually.
because I knew that I didn’t need you to live.
I can live my life without you, I don’t need you. I didn’t know that before, but I do now.
You just made me feel better for a while.
Then I noticed that we just weren’t meant to be.
I sat on my bed and couldn’t believe I wasted my tears on you.
You weren’t worth them.
You just took my loneliness away for a while.
But that came back faster than you took it.
I was stupid for thinking I loved you.
You said everything you ever said to me was true.
But at the end of all this everything was a lie to me.
