You Vs Me

Heart Breaking

Tear Inducing

My world stopped when you left

Sleepless Nights

Numb Feelings

I couldn’t pick myself back up

I wanted to forget

I wanted to stop existing

All together

I thought I grew up when you broke

Me

Then it hit

Me

How incredibly toxic

You were

How abusive and manipulative

You were

I clung, begged, and groveled

For something that wasn’t good

For Me

But who gave up on us?

Who refused to fix it?

You

I’ve learned

I’ve realized

And I’ve changed

I didn’t grow up when you hurt

Me

I grew when I realized

Who I was

How much my worth was

I grew up when I got over

You

And focused more on

Me
