Pushing and pulling.
We push and pull at each other
like two magnets,
opposing and attracting
with every twist.
You push me away
and I pull you back.
I push you in return,
you pull me further into the dark.
We’re no good for one another.
We knew this wouldn’t last.
What did you expect,
when all the lies piled up.
Did you think you could hide them forever?
Lies never stay hidden.
The truth reveals itself in the end,
and often not in the ways we want it to.
Your lies were the final nail in the coffin of our relationship.
You were supposed to be my new beginning ,
my happy ever after
my knight coming to rescue me.
I realized too late that I dont need to be rescued.
I needed an equal.
Someone to pull me up when I fell,
not pull me down and drown me.
I needed someone to push me to be my best,
not push me towards darkness and deceit.
You think that you haven’t done anything wrong.
You love me, so how could you ever hurt me?
The ones who love us tend to hurt us the most.
You wanted me kept tightly in your firm grip.
You always “knew what was best for me”,
without consulting me.
I thought I was the one that didn’t deserve you.
You were sunshine and warmth wrapped in a human body.
I didn’t realize you’d leave me burnt and scarred skin.
I’m choosing to move on.
I’m choosing to forget.
You never deserved my devotion and defense.
Everyone warned me about you, they told me you were dangerous.
I didn’t believe them, I couldn’t see.
You’ve opened my eyes, for the last time.
So goodbye, my love.
Goodbye, my friend.
You won’t be invited into my life again.
