Don’t look at me #poetry

Don’t look at me that way…

Don’t look at me like you know what you’re missing when you didn’t even know what you had. Don’t look at me like you are sorry for what you said when we both know what you said didn’t amount to what I did. Don’t look at me that way.. Like I’m your biggest regret.. especially when I brought the best out of you when your insides were dead. Don’t look at me that way..

Don’t look at me like I sucked up all of your will and killed your fight! Don’t even look my way when I let you see me in the rawest form of me, flaws and all, when we know you pretended to accept me while you were gathering ammo to destroy me. Don’t look at me that way.. Like you helped me heal and forgave me for the pain I caused you. Like you didn’t help me in the sabotage of our family, of our future. Don’t look at me that way..

Don’t look at me that way.. Turn away like you did every time I needed you the most. Turn away the only way you know how when it’s not about what you need and what you want. Don’t turn around to look at me now when you were so quick to turn your back on me in my moment of weakness and anger. Like you don’t know I was good to you and had everything in a woman that you needed before you came along to try and prove me wrong. Don’t look at me that way…
