I draw a line,

Then I retrace my broken boundaries a thousand more times…

How did you become a complete stranger to me?

Caught up on the pain you left me with, but every day in life isn’t guaranteed.

Letting go was never meant to be easy,

I’m still slowly sipping my own accountability & homemade sweet tea.

Without you I don’t have to constantly defend & fight for who I am, I determine what I believe.

Always wanted to say you were the problem, but I have my own issues until finally deciding it was time for me to leave.

You’ll hit me with another guilt trip, I’m the one you want to blame.

Twisted in the past was the only way you could keep me playing your games.

I don’t love you, I don’t hate you, I don’t need you, trust me no feelings survived the neglect & abuse.

No longer waiting on you to change, that’s something you alone have to choose. I learned the hard way, I could give you all of me but in the end there’s no use.

You were a hero to me, then a villain, then a human, then a stranger…

Loving me is more valuable to me than your kind of love – love her, let her go, & don’t ever try to change her.

I’m not ashamed or sorry to say…

Leaving you was what I needed to be okay.
