This is yet another thing I did for school. In this case, I had left behind an old flame and started a new romance. Now, what this means for me is I have left that last, very abusive, guy behind and I'm my own person now. :D

Where did I go?

 

 

 

What happened to me?
Where did I go?
How did I leave you behind?
How did I leave who I thought I was with you?

I thought I needed you.

I thought I was here, but I’m not

 At least not the old me.

I feel strange without that person
I feel slightly empty.
But she is still inside of me.
I feel it in my veins.
I can't be that girl.
At least not anymore.

Because I’ve moved on

I’ve left you standing where you broke my heart.

If you’re pining for me, for her

Get over it like I got over you.

I’m with someone new.

He loves me like you never did.

He treats me like you never will.

He is here for me like you never were.

I remember screaming your name.

I remember despair and pain.

I was so quiet and closed.

There were walls of ice around my heart.

I let none in, not even God.

Then there was he.

He opened me and promised he wouldn’t hurt me.

You cannot say the same.

I still contained myself but he was patient.

He loves me in spite of myself

Yet, you left me for another.

I loved you but he is here now.

He’s opened my heart again

Where you had closed it off.

Want me? Miss me?

Too bad.

I have someone who really loves me now.

Eat your heart out.
