Our love burned hot and bright. I was naive to think it would last forever, too blind see it was slowly burning out. I was willing to do anything to make you stay but you just turned me into a puppet, pulling on my heart strings, making me your play thing. I was hurt but I held on because I love(d) you. You laughed at my pain. But now I’ve found another. I didn’t expect it, she came into my life and set me free, she’s the rose that grew from the concrete, she’s my new hope and the reason I left, the reason you vilify me. You scorn me for my finding happiness, but I don’t hear it anymore because you don’t matter. I have found another.
