Should’ve Known

Why aren’t you here?
To be my savior and vanquish every fear?
Were you frightened by the mere
thought that maybe you wouldn’t be able to wipe this tear?
This tear, that glides smoothly down my cheek,
I listen to you, as you start to speak,
you act as though I am weak.
Well guess what, I’m not the weak one.
You and your words helped me realize I don’t need you,
and I don’t care what you do,
you and I were one, but now we’re two,
works make way for me for I’m brand new.
Unattached and free, it’s true,
I’ll forget everything I thought I knew,
for a self-reinvention I’ve long been due,
but really, after everything we’ve been through,
I should have known better than to fall for you.
