How did you know to pick me?
Were you told by someone?
Maybe you read my mind..
Or is it possible,
that on that fateful day,
I ventured out into the world
un-aware I was wearing a sign
which stated~:

~*~
this girl believes she is worthless
so she'll believe your lies without question
She will give you everthing you demand
and ask nothing in return
[at least not out loud
perhaps she may plead with her eyes
but you can always ignore those.]
She will make sure she only cries in the solace of her room
that she always presents you with a smile
so you are never burdened with guilt.
And when she sees you in another's arms
Showing the type affection you never bestowed on her,
she won't complain
after all, she beleives she's worthless
~*~

????

Was that how you chose me as your prey
perhaps you didn't read it off a sign
maybe my eyes, those open windows to my soul
maybe they told you all you needed to know.
Well, one way or another, you were given 
the weapons with which to cripple me
So that when word spread, like an
unquenchable forest fire,
And others like you approached me,
I was powerless to now change or defy
 what I'd been labelled as.
So the pattern repeated itself
like an endless loop
until there was nothing left of my soul to destroy.

????

I gave you the weapons with which to destroy me
and you used took full advantage of them
just as you did me.
with an enviable sense of total obliviousness
and an truly astounding lack of remorse
you broke me, 
and yet you lived everyday without ever noticing 
the pain you caused me.
not even when I occasionally let down my guard
and dared to peek out from behind the facade of my bright smile.
It forces me to consider the possibility
that perhaps you knew all along
maybe you saw past my fake smile to the broken girl I was.
maybe you saw all that and simply never cared.

~*~
Having said all that,
how can I possibly blame you for destroying me
when it was I who gave
you the means to do so
