2nd November 2008

The 2nd of November 2008 will always stick out in my mind
Because that is the exact day to which I wish I could rewind.
I would change everything starting from when I invited you round
Saving myself from the millions of tears in which I nearly drowned.

I would make sure there was never a first or last kiss
Then I could have avoided falling into your hearts dark abyss
I have gained nothing from allowing you into my life, yet I lost so much
I wish that I had walked away before our lips were ever to touch.

I wish I had left my last relationship for my own reasons and not for you
Oh, how different things would be if I known what you would do
I have made some seriously stupid decisions before, but you rank high
If only I could foretell that every word out of your mouth would be a lie

People are dispensable to you, you feel no shame for the damage that you inflict
If your plan was to fool me with fantasies and lies, then I admit you had me tricked
From the bottom of my broken heart I can now say that I do not want you anymore
It may have been you who walked away but its me who is slamming the door.

    This is great Hayley and so relatable, especially the last stanza and the last line in particular. Sad but with great content and rhyming :-) x
