Spare me the drama
The stories …. the lies
All the excuses
The fake alibis.

I’m done …. this is over
I’m finally free
Don’t come any closer
Don’t talk to me.

All the abuse
The cheating …. the lies
All of the nights
I sat here and cried.

Foolishly wanting 
What I never had
Being mistreated
And feeling so bad.

The subtle remarks
Always withholding 
The weight of the world
Lifted off of my shoulders.

Don’t call …. send a text
Don’t ever stop by
It’s over between us
This is finally goodbye.
