Is it too late to start hating you?
Now I know you cause my pain?
You bored the first hole
Which hammered me to the tree
Burned my skin before the first scar
I thought the subsequent harm was my fault
I never knew you had lit the match
Your disregard, your carelessness
Your ugly selfish self
You threw me aside and walked on by
Not even waiting to survey the wreckage
You rejected me
You rejected my baby
You didn’t even check in
You never knew the baby didn’t come
You didn’t ask or care
I felt hurt and betrayed
Not knowing that it wasn’t okay
I thought this was how things were
You set a scene
Teaching me what I expected and deserved
