i am done being the bad guy
i'm sick of feeling guilty
beating myself up and down
over what i did to you
it wasn't fair it wasn't right
but you forgave me, or so you said
funny, how after everything
this is the only poem i've wrote with you in mind
even when you were my love
and i was yours
now you can't stand to see me happy
can't bear the thought that
i may be done suffering
that maybe i have forgiven myself
and no longer see you as the victim
you see yourself high above
everyone below
but i know you now
the wonderful, the terrible
i know it all
and you hate me for that
you hate me for the fact
that you gave everything to me
but that is what love is
you knew that, you know that
and that's why you are so very angry
at yourself, for giving it all to me
at me, for taking it away
and throwing it down
but i am not the one to blame
no one here is or ever was
sometimes things just happen
but you have to move on
get on with your life
and let go of the anger
i'm done being mad at myself
and that, right there, is the difference.
