I should have known

His mouth was full of crap

The first time he had opened it.

It smelled rancid - his breath,

And it was ironic that one day his lies

Would be just as horrible. 

Every time he opened his lips to speak,

I'd cringe, for I knew from the start 

He was nothing but a liar.

Dammit I am not blind,

I just want to see the good in people.

But you can't fix a broken record.

It repeats the same cycle.


And over.

And over again, until you are tired 

Of hearing the same apology,

The same excuse,

When you should have left him week one

When he had cheated on you.

But you were nice. 

And that man was a broken record,

But the thing is - you never touched that record,

However, everyday it would break worse than the last.

Until all that was left was cracked imperfections,

And you realize you were wrong,

When everyone else was right.

You aren't used to that, 

Because it is always the opposite.

But love did, I admit now...

It blinded me. 

But I can see again.

You, were a waste of four years of my life,

And I should have never loved you.

But now, finally, 

I am over you.
