Backbone

You thought you had me wrapped around your finger.
You said you had my back and that's the way it would always be.
Little did you know i would not always be there to linger.
And time would reveal, you never did get the best of me.

I had given my heart and soul to your hands.
With every thought shared i trusted you more.
Who knew you would turn out to be the complete opposite of a good man.
Rotten and hollow i soon realized was your core.

Never in my life did i think it would come down to that.
Throwing every detail back into my face.
I swear, you just watched as my heart fell out of my body, hitting the ground with a splat.
For you obviously, compassion was not the case.

But don't think this is to make me feel bad for me. I actually want to thank you for making me stronger, stronger that you could ever be.
