i guess i should have cried today,
but baby, i’m just fine.
your words have simply lost their sting
after the hundredth time.
you were someone i once believed in,
but the truth has come to light.
you so badly want different,
but it’s not worth the fight.
“you are incredible, KLB”
you looked in my eyes as you said this.
but you walked out of my life once more,
so i wonder if you meant it.
i watched your mouth say the words to me
and you reached to touch my skin.
i pulled away from hands i once loved,
you’re not welcome back again.
on to life’s next tough lesson, right? i’m ready for it.
