I'm trying so hard to make this not about you,
But writing it down is all I know what to do,
You don't upset me or make me cry anymore,
I just get angry, what is this anger for?

You beat me down so low I couldn't get up,
I saw it as weakness; you called it love,
In fairness I was blind; too weak to aim higher,
But time erased my stupidity and exposed you as a liar.

I grew a backbone and I developed strength,
As confidence came in, the weakness went,
Even when caught out, you tried to defend,
All of the things that put your deceit to an end.

Turned on the tears and tried to win,
But I'd moved forward and wouldn't turn round agAin.
I'm not bitter; instead I am glad,
For at 1 point I wanted what we both Had.

Now almost a year later I'm happy again,
I'm free of your lies and I'm free of pain,
Thank you for the laughter but more so for the hurt,
You`v taught me to never let anyone again treat me like dirt.
