scorned

i’d still be angry with every lie, the shadows cast aside
every argument ending in a tie, any satisfactions denied
long mornings or silence, to evenings of tolerance
the loss of reliance, to no audience
if i took up arms, you’d only cry
there would be no harm, nothing to dignify
but you didn’t learn, you set fire
now it’s my turn, to ruin your desire
you always complained about the past, how you were hurt and distraught
but i was a fool for thinking it would last, getting lost in love’s thought
putting me in your position, how ignorant you are to see
will i ever get an admission, of how you wronged me
has anything truly changed, i’m on the losing side
hearts rearranged, i know i tried
to stop you – from becoming what you despised
