I never had a fucking chance, no matter what you say,
Every turn, every breath, he has been here every day.
Maybe not physically but buried deep behind your eyes.
No matter how much love I give, he still lives within your lies.
In my ignorance, I disregarded, overlooked, and tried to ignore,
The fact that the thought of him overwhelmed you with amour.
So often you pranced and danced to the tune of his selfish song,
Leaving me, not caring about me, telling me I was wrong.
Second best is all I am, and it is all I will ever be,
Might as well tuck my tail and smile like a fool full of glee,
Hey, I am just the one that loves and worries and needlessly needs,
It makes sense that I should also be the only one that bleeds.
But, with all the tainted words that escaped your putrid tongue,
Were you really so stupid to not understand how deep it stung?
In the end, though you’re gone, there are remnants everywhere,
In memories, and nightmares, and his stench still within your hair.
Someone better is out there, and I know my heart will mend,
No longer will I suffer, I will permit myself to love again.
