He left me on my best friend's front porch step
Six months and thirty two days ago.
And looking back,
I couldn't be happier.
And they say that breaking up is kind of like a competition,
Who can lose more weight, be in a better mindset, accomplish more,
Within the span of time that they are single and if it continues through not being single.
And being with him,
I lost twenty pounds from not eating
Because I felt afraid to leave the room
Or the house
And I felt afraid
I went to the hospital weighing
I am now at a healthy weight again,
But my dresses still don't fit right,
They're a little too loose in the waist,
But I'm still full in my hips
And full in my chest.
It was like a divorce,
And he got custody of all our friends
And my toaster.
But they weren't real friends
If they chose him and him alone.
Blind as bats, and just as crazy.
I was a mess when he left, I'm being honest.
And before that, I was a mess too.
But I'm better now.
I'm better and I'm stronger and I can stand on my own two feet
And not let a vapid, controlling, womanizer
Get me down.
I am better than I ever was
Before I met him,
And I am better, a thousand times more
Than I was when he left me.
And I am so thankful,
That he left the way he did
And that he left at all.
I was a shell of a human,
But I am better now.
Small accomplishments and pride in my work and myself.
He's dating the poor thing he cheated on me with.
And I couldn't be happier for them.
I have love in my heart I had held onto for so long,
And I can finally give it to you, because I know you deserve it,
And I can stand with you against the world
As a united front against whatever may come.
Because I am strong, resilient, and ethereal.
Because I am braver now, stronger now, better now.
Heard some good news about a friend who isn't a friend, reminded me of douchedick and how much better off I am without him, and how much better off I am with my Bluebird.
