Memories and Misery

I am an open book

You are a slammed door

Yet you give me that look

As if you want more

No matter how much I give

It is never enough

My soul leaking like a sieve

Why are you being so tough

Asking for everything I have

but giving nothing in return

I am not a whole, I’m a halve

So part of you I did earn

We are in this together

Not I alone

I always envisioned forever

Yet then I was thrown

Tossed aside, cast away

Sure you’ll call me one rainy day

But until then you’ve left me

Yet I love you why can’t you see

You’ve taken all of me

While I got none of you

But memories and misery

Was any of it true

Or was I just used

Might as well have abused

Bruises would have heeled

I hope you know how this feels

To be abandoned, stranded

Emotionally calloused and branded

Do you not realize you hurt me?

Did you think I would be fine?

How could you just desert me?

I wanted you to be mine

I gave you all of me

You took all I had to give

Now you won’t set me free

But you expect me to live

With no closure or compromise

With no possibility of a reprise

Of the love we shared

You supposedly cared

So you told me repeatedly

Then I caught you cheating on me

What does she have that  I don’t?

What does she do that I won’t?

I guarantee I’m the best you ever had

But you threw me away like trash

But that was your mistake, your bad

One day this will make you abash

You treated me so poorly

I was so wronged

Yet I have not lost sorely

For we never belonged

Together in any capacity

So I move on with tenacity

While you meagerly exist

One day you will be filled with regret

You will see me and cannot resist

But I will be strong I bet

And will be the one to cast you aside

For I will remember how you lied

Used me for all you could

Abandoned me when I needed you most

Then you will stand where I’ve stood

And to that I give a toast

For I will have the last laugh

I will have paved a new path

A new future without you in it

One without pain and regret
