It's been a few years now,
and I hadn't thought of you much,
but the mere mention of your name today,
knocked me back like a loaded punch.
The damage you did to my heart
seemed so brutally unfair.
I thought you were my friend,
and I believed you really cared.
I trusted you completely,
but felt you betrayed my trust.
I don't know if I can forgive you,
for hurting me that much.
I'm still not strong enough,
or so it seems to appear,
to not flinch or get winded,
whenever your name I hear.
Kate, I don't like that you have
this gripping hold on me.
I can't have you in my life anymore.
Please release your hold and let me be.
