Your actions prove it

by Beautiful Tragedy   Jan 2, 2018

There was a time when you used
to built me up instead of putting
me down;
When you’d kiss my scars instead of inflict the wounds that made
Making me feel whole again.
There was a time when everything you did made me happy;
When I loved you no matter what you did or said,
Backed you even if you were wrong;
And protected you even though it hurt me.
I loved you selflessly;
And you turned your back on me when things got rough;
Shutting me down and telling me that I was hurting you without ever taking my feeling into consideration.
You drained the life out of me and stole every last ounce of energy I had;
Controlled my life until it was exactly how you wanted it to be and drug me down until I was feeling worse than you were.
And now;
I’ve finally found happiness
and you have the audacity to try
to tell me that I’m nothing but a piece of meat to the man who has so selflessly healed all of
The gaping wounds and insecurities that YOU left in my heart.
The funniest part of that;
Is that we haven’t even had sex yet but you continue to assume that
You know who I am now,
After almost a year of not talking to me.
Call it what you want;
But you will never be half the man he is,
And you never were.
Your actions prove it.
