Everything happens for a reason
yes, I’ve heard that now more times than I can count.
One day you’ll see that what you learned
was something that made you stronger.
Well of course it’s going to make me stronger
and give me that hard and shiny edge.
I’m learning how to live my life
totally and completely alone.
I’m here in this place without anyone
trying to get though each day.
While just across town I know you are there
living your new life with her.
While I was busy trying to live
our life and take care of us.
You were busy building a relationship
online with someone else.
Then off you ran after “something that was missing”
to find “what you needed for you”.
I think that’s really the hardest thing
to accept in all of this.
That it wasn’t any of the reasons you told me
it was just so you could be with her.
The disrespect, the lies and deceit
have negated the life that we once had.
It’s taken away everything
that ever existed between us.
So as far as things happening for a reason
I’m a little bitter on that point.
None of it had to happen like this
and the fallout is now my life.
And now as I plan to move away from here
from the town where I moved for you.
I am terrified and miserably frightened
because for me there is no going home.
I am going off on my own
because it is either that or succumb.
To the terrible state that you left me in
and have not once asked if I was ok.
So much for us staying friends
and helping each other get through this.
You would have said anything to get rid of me
just so you could get to her.
I am such a fool and feel that role
each day as I move through this.
I loved you with complete devotion
and now I am completely alone.
