You Won't Own Me

You may have really hurt me
And said you didn't care.
You caused a lot of pain
I'll admit it wasn't fair.
Months have passed
Since I saw you last.
My tears have fallen
And been cast.
I'll never see you
Or so I hope.
It's been so hard
But I'll have to cope.
My blood was drawn
To kill the pain.
I was just a pawn
In your stupid game.
But even though
Your in my thoughts
You wont consume me
I can't be bought.
Someday I will let you go
So I can be free
And let you know
You won't own me.

This is amazing, you can really feel the pain you went through when you wrote this. I like how you explained that you wanted to move on, but you couldn't. Keep up the good writing!

I'm not sure if you're adressing the person we talked about that first night we talked, or if you're adressing me. Whichever way, ouch. If you were adressing me though, you weren't a "pawn," I really did care about you. I hope you know that.
