My nightmares of you have finally slowed

The smirk on your face is starting to dull

The lies you told have lost their hold

The mask you wore has lost its host

The damage you’ve done is unresolved

Yet I take steps to be absolved

Of any debts you left ignored

You can’t repress my need to love

You can’t intrude upon my thoughts

You’ve been evicted, we are done

Your betrayal, the harshest one

Your victims vulnerable, weak and young

Yet so was I and I am grown

I have the strength to carry on

Soon your damage will be gone

And you will finally be forgotten.
