For a moment,

Just for one second,

I let my guard down

And I let you in.

You were everything I'd dreamed of,

Everything I'd ever wanted.

You were perfect.

Until you showed your true self.

I had been too happy

To see through the face you had been hiding.

I let my guard down,

And you took it all.

And once you had taken everything,

You left.

Before I'd wanted you back,

And inexplicably, you did come back.

I let you in again,

I gave you a second chance.

Once again,

You took everything I'd rebuilt.

Before I had been devastated,

But now I know.

I'm better off without you,

Even if it leaves me with nothing.

So go ahead.

Take it all,

And leave.

I will not come back to you.
