I Know He’s No Good (Poem #61)

He showed me the kind of girl he wanted
then he turned me into the kind of girl
I never thought I could become

I struggled each day
I was warned, but I stayed

They said he’ll just break my heart
I said, “he might, but he might not”

They said he’ll eventually leave me for another girl
I said, “I’m gonna make sure I’ll be that girl
unworthy to be left behind.”

But who am I to determine my worth
when I placed all of me on the palm of his hand?

Who am I to tell the world
that I was his victim
when I ran straight to his arms?

Who am I to say that I never saw his betrayal coming
when all along I knew he would betray me
I just hoped he wouldn’t

Who am I to blame somebody else
when all along I knew who he was
I just pretended that I didn’t

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
