This will be our final goodbye,
Our farewell to the things that changed us for better and worse,
I gave myself to a fool in love …foolish enough to think…
But that is a tale for dreamers of a better love,
For those who anticipate the ending to a tragedy long before it takes place,
And for those who can weather the storm as it breaks you.
Perhaps that is a tale built in warning, in the cautionary kisses from lovers before,
I gave myself away on the promise of a better feeling, a temporary feeling,
One that I will never replicate, as I could never feel the way you once did,
Cause I never knew you that way, did I?
But there is no use dwelling on the way things could have been
So let me say sorry for the sake of me,
Because I will never be able to move on from you if you keep me trapped by this guilt,
The possession, the bruises and the lies were an odd way to show your love,
And yes, we experience these things differently,
But I know this can’t be what I waited my whole life to feel,
The rush of blood should be from the excitement of you, not the fear,
And it took me a long time to be able to tell the difference.Yes, I let you use me in ways I thought would make you happy,
To eager to keep the peace, to notice the person you were solely turning into,
Or perhaps, that was who you were all along,
And I was too blinded on the thought of that temporary feeling.
So allow me to move on form you, with a bleeding heart and bruised ego,
But know that you did show me the different ways to love,
How not to love, how not to treat the person you’ve chained to your side,
And let me learn these lessons the hard way, for that seems to be the only way my heart
But know that she has learned a great deal from you.
So maybe you were once a fool in love, but I think our definitions of fool are drastically different,
Because while I was a fool to trust you, a fool to give herself away on a temporary thing
You are a fool, one who will never learn from his wrongs,
A court jester stuck pleasing a king, who has already decided cut off his head,
A fool no one will miss in the days to pass.
