Yeah. Ok.

by Beautiful Tragedy   Oct 3, 2017

I sacrificed everything for you-
My reputation, my freedom,
My right to justice...
I took the blame for every rumor that went around about us
even though I never said a damn word.
I had to fix everything even when they weren't my mistakes to fix-
And what did I get for it,
What did I get for it??
I lied countless times to people who CARED about me,
people who only wanted what was best for me and saw that I was
hurting way before you even took the time to realize it yourself.
And when that wasn't enough;
I took charges for something that had been done TO me in order to save
you and that damned job
you claimed to have loved so much but only used to get away from
Every problem that ever came your way.
I risked losing my place to live and being put back in a group home
just so I could see you.
Every privilege I'd ever worked for
I'd sacrificed just for you;
But yet I didn't love you?
I cost you everything??
Yeah. Ok.

    I'm sorry you had to go through that. Where I'm from originally I see this stuff happen a lot, unfortunately. I wish you the best. Could feel the rage & frustration intensify the more I read. Great job.
