Thank you for the heartache
And the whimpering at night.
Thank you for the promise that
“Everything would be alright”
Did I thank you for the splinters
As my world crashed round my head?
Or for making me believe
In every twisted thing you said?
Should I cover you in glory,
Hang your portrait on my wall?
For taking me to heights
From which you knew that I’d soon fall.
Thank you for the crushing,
When the crush became too much,
The left behind, and out my mind
emotions - I'm so touched.
Never mind the tears and torture
From a wound that never mends
I think all that was covered when you said,
“We can still be friends”
I think I’m all done thanking now,
As I lie alone here in my bed
But I’d thank you one more time
If I could get you out my head.
