That which doesn't kill me can only make me stronger.


I can feel his eyes burning
into the back of my head.
All I have to do is
accept his apology.
I want to, but it’s too late.
Saying sorry doesn’t change
what he did to me.
Saying sorry can’t take it back.
I’m not sure he understands,
but I can’t tell him.
I won’t tell him.
If I let him know that it hurts,
and that my heart is in a billion pieces,
and that it’s his face I see in the mirror,
he wins.
I can’t let that happen.
I won’t let that happen.
So, I’ll let it burn.
I’ll let him wonder what could have been.
I’ll let them think I’m alright.
After all,
If I just forgive and forget,
he wins.

I con relate to this so much. It makes me think of me walking away from my bf after he broke up with me, and him yelling out "I hope you dont hate me." The only difference is i let hi win. We are talking now and he has my heart again. I feel like im bout to get hurt again to

I like this quite a bit. I think alot of girls can relate to this, so it's very effective. Good job!

its metaphorical hes not really looking in the mirror with me......

also i didnt let him win; its all about the struggle he caused and how im not going to give in. reread it...it says "i cant let that happen, i wont let that happen"

What do you mean at the part

"...and that it's his face I see in the mirror,..." 

Is the "he" with you in the mirror or have you become him? Is it literal or metaphoric?

If you know what he did to you, and how horrible it affected you and the people around you, why give in? Why did you forgive and forget and let him win? Obviously the person talking didn't want to. (I'm guessing it's you)
