Last Look

I fought for years to keep your heart,
Should've been no battle,
rightfully mine from the start,
Ignored everything else,
felt so stupid and stressed,
to learn that you'd later squash the heart in my chest,

My last look in your eyes,
savaged my insides,
It's all come to this,
Our final words with no kiss,
No hugs and no sign of remorse,
It's obvious things have taken their course,

If not your way, then bye, don’t give a shit what I do,
Waste of my time trying to talk to you,
It's like trying to knock down a brick wall,
Your love was never intended for the long haul

Was foolish thinking your abusive days were over,
Guess that's impossible when your an asshole undercover,
Only certainty is that you'll never change,
Life without you is my only chance to be sane,

Too mad to talk I left you there,
The sane voice made my choice instantly clear,
All my efforts have been exceeded,
Wars over, this is the closure I needed
Tears run down my face and I feel rage,
Like fine wine, my happiness will grow with age.
