I get labeled the “bitter” girl a lot so I thought I would try saying thank you for a change.
Thank you for abruptly disappearing when I finally started to venture
Don’t worry, this time I promise I will spare you the lecture.
Thank you for not opening the message we both know you’ve seen,
Thank you for the unfathomable amount of uncertainty you’ve given me.
Thank you for reminding me it’s much safer staying alone.
Thank you for re-introducing me to a lethal rejection I’ve already known.
Thank you for not showing me the wedding band you took off in your car,
Because God forbid you hadn’t, things wouldn’t have gotten this far.
Finally, thank you for labeling me as the crazy one when my back is turned,
Maybe one day I can pay you back for all the valuable lessons I’ve learned.
