I told you, I told you so...

From the beginning,

I told you, I told you’d leave for something better.

It never takes long. You denied and denied and I got comfortable.

Shame on me, I should’ve known. Once, twice, again.

I fell, and I fell hard.

You let me believe you did too.

Why was it even an option? You said you’d always care, you’d always love me and would never leave.

But now you’re walking out the door saying you’ll see me again.

I’ll see you in my dreams, no, my nightmares. The one’s that make me toss and turn and scream in fear and regret.

The nights I cried myself to sleep, painfully whispering to the demons that are there to comfort me, he loved me, he loved me so.

I told you, I told you so.
