And just for thought...
I sat across from you and knew what you expected.
You wanted spiteful words and careless jabs but I gave you only a smile.
What was it you were trying to prove?
Did you want to see love in my eyes and hurt in my voice?
You saw nothing but a steel strength you weren't prepared for.
I knew where your hand was and I knew how you wanted me to react but I gave nothing.
You paraded her in front of my face to make yourself feel better,
the man who can't be alone,
thinking that it would rip my heart out.
Did you make your point?
I was the better person, something you never saw in me.
You do not know me at all, you never did.
All I'm doing now is laughing at you.
How does that make you feel?
You claim that our daughter is important to you but your words are empty.
I know your devotion to the daughter you never paid attention to was only to impress the new woman.
You were always good at playing the victim.
Maybe she'll buy it and be the one you always dreamed of.
Maybe she'll get smart quicker than I did and run the other way.
I don't honestly care either way.
As for me, I walked away with my head held high.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
