Don’t forget what you told me.

Don’t forget what you meant to me.

Of course you already failed at that.

A few words muttered behind my back, was all it took.

For me to leave, crying.

Then strong.

 

All the dirty looks you give me, I give right back.

You seem to lose them a lot around me.

But don’t worry, I’ll give them back.

I think about you still.

Maybe you’ll come back,

Maybe apologize for all the things you’ve done.

 

Or

 

Maybe you’ll stop dating guy after guy,

Because I am not there to help you choose

Maybe you’ll stop bullying that other girl,

Because she has better fashion sense then you do.

 

I should’ve seen it coming.

Behind all the makeup,

Fake smiles,

And flowery perfume

Is a monster.

 

Only you wish you looked like one.

Anything to get out of your own skin,

That I told you was perfectly fine.

 

You see, you are clearly better off

Without me.

Just like you said.
