You took my heart right out of my chest Like a knee to the stomach I often received But will never forget.
You stomped on it and crushed it Until all that was left was blood and shrapnel, All because you lied and couldn't commit.
And then you came along and forced your way in, It was easy and thoughtless and ******, And according to all your friends, I had it coming.
Gas lighting and manipulating Pushing me over the edge over and over and over Throwing hissy fits when you left me and I started dating.
You use people like they're toys And treat them like they're trash. All I can remember is the low of your voice, It's my most disdained noise.
It's hard to bring myself out of it, Out of the screaming matches And the cruelty and my lips being split.
But I know he'll never hurt me Like either of you did. Because he's not so beastly, And I'm, for some reason, worthy Of kindness and being treated gently. And his love is setting me free Of the shackles you both have placed on me.
