Second Place

You left me in
A dark abyss
Lonely and afraid
Safe, I never felt
From the chaos 
That you made

My ego took
A beating
My emotions
All but paused
My heart and
Soul are broken
From the pain
That your ‘love’

I pushed aside
The truth 
I couldn’t face
I wandered
Through denial
Coming out in
Second place

    Love should never hurt. Best lesson learned was to walk away.
