When you see your ex be in love with someone else,
It hits you all at once.
All of your memories together starts to flood back.
Your first meeting- the way he smiled at you and introduced himself.
The courtship - when you start to get to know each other better.
The dating - when things start to become more intimate.
Then the fights - some issues that were resolved, but some that had a snowball effect.
And finally, that snowball which caused the break-up.
The anger, the sadness, the pain, everything drowns you all at once.
"Everything drowns you all at once."
You wonder if you are that replaceable.
Is it that easy to remove your part in his life?
After everything that you have been through together,
He replaces you, just like that.
And you wonder if she’s treating him better.
That maybe she’s too good for him.
Too good for the man that broke your heart.
Slightly afraid, that he might break her heart too.
Because maybe that is what he is good at.
He will shower you with all his love and attention.
He will make you feel like you are his entire world.
Make you feel that you were lucky enough,
That God gave you this guy who loves you too much.
Then in a drop of hat, he breaks your heart, just like that.
"He breaks your heart, just like that."
And in a few months,
He easily moved on and forgot all about you.
Meanwhile, the scar that he left behind still burns in your heart.
The trauma from loving someone too much and too fast still keeps you awake at night.
The anxiety attacks that make breathing even hard to do still lingers,
Even if you don’t want it to.
In the back of your mind, you always wanted to ask him:
Was it too easy for you?
"Was it too easy for you?"
Because maybe I was too good for you.
I placed you on a pedestal and loved the idea of you,
Without knowing the real you.
You were a wolf in a sheep’s clothing, and I fell prey of it.
But I won’t let your memories hurt me anymore.
I’m not that innocent girl anymore who once gave her all to you.
And I hope that she won’t do that mistake too.
