You tore my heart out of my chest and crushed it in your grasp
“This is what your love means to me.”
“How can you do this to me?”
“Easy I only used you as a means to an end.”
“And what end was that?”
“So I could get to the real one that I wanted.”
“Who? I thought I could be everything you ever needed.”
“You could never be anything close to what I want or need”
“Who is it that you used me for?”
“Why, your best friend of course.”
“But… what about all the times you said you loved me?”
“Those were but stage words to keep the act going.”
“So, I mean nothing to you?”
“You’re not even worth the time I take to scrape scum off my shoes.”
“Then leave the pieces of my heart where they lie.”
“No problem. It’s not like I’d take them anywhere anyway.”
“Now go. I hope I never have to see you again.”
“Me either. Well, this was fun. Good-bye and good riddance.”
-Now what am I to do?-
-I thought I was complete now I see I am not-
-I thought I was loved now I see its rot-
-I can only wait for someone to love the real me-
-Broken as I am its all I can hope for-
