You left me lying on the ground,
Bleeding and close to death
You walked away,
And never looked back.

I lied there for a while,
Wishing I would die
So the arms of Hades would envelope me,
And make me feel nothing.

Because you would think that feeling
Is better than feeling

But it’s not.

So I got up
It was a slow process,
And I fell down a couple of times,
But when I did get up,
I didn’t go back to you.

Instead I dusted off my butt,
And mopped the blood and tears off the floor,
Told myself I wouldn’t miss you,
And so I didn’t.

After a while, you came around
You said you were
That you wanted me back.

I slammed the door in your face.

Because you didn’t kill me.

In fact, you just made me stronger.
