No! I cannot forgive you; I just cannot.
You broke my heart, you made me cry
You betrayed you cheated.
How can I forgive you for all this.
Trust was shattered, never to mend again.
How can you expect me to love you once again
Share with you my inner soul- a place you muddled.
I can’t do it; sorry I just can’t
You bought me flowers; you bought me a teddy,
You paid for sparkling surprises
You said sorry a thousand times; something you never before did
But my heart is weeping.
I am so much changed- the fuming face; the endless frown.
Always drained, my strength fragile.
Yelling at everyone I meet
I was really not like this.
See what this anger has done to me.
It’s been a long time, I am holding it on.
I cannot take this burden for too long.
It’s time now to let go,
To forgive and to forget
Not for you; but for myself.
Because I need to care;
Because I know I have stopped loving myself.
I am setting you free from my anger bondage
I am leaving it in the open skies
Life is calling me; I want to live free
Not in the prison of your mistakes but as a free bird once again.
