You saw me,
Gazed at me with love,
Took me,
And then abandoned me.

You despised me,
Stared at me with glaring eyes,
Those same eyes
That once gazed at me with love.

I was your burden,
Your replacement,
Your rebound,
Your trophy.

You saw me again,
Gazed at me with love again,
Took me again,
And then abandoned me once again.

You despised me the same way,
Stared at me with those same glaring eyes,
Those very same eyes,
That had once gazed at me with love.

Once again, I was your burden,
Once again, I was your replacement,
Once again, I was your rebound,
Your trophy to put up.

I know I was your burden,
Your replacement,
Your rebound,
One of your many trophies.

So why am I not able to let go?
Why do I keep trying?
Why am I living in denial?
Why can’t I move on?

Now, you don’t know what to think of me,
You look at me,
Perplexing and wondering whether to take me back,
To put me up as a trophy once again.

Will you once again notice me?
Gaze at me with love?
Take me back?
And then abandon me?

The question that lingers now,
What am I to you?
I drift in that limbo space.
Not knowing which way to go.
