Nobody Told You

Nobody told you that
ripping him off from your heart
would be just as painful as ripping
a bandage off of your skin

Nobody told you that
cutting him off meant
amputating loved parts of yourself
that had been decaying

There were not enough energy in the world
to defy the hate, to survive the exhaustion
It took a whole lot of you to sacrifice
Some days you just wanted to give up

You had never wished to reap
a pain that much from a small seed you sown

told you

Nobody told you that
You needed no one to save you
but yourself
