You don’t have to

Well they don’t matter anymore
All the reasons you told yourself
For not choosing me
For not taking my hand
For never holding me close
For not reaching for me when I sank too low
When I needed you.
I don’t have it all together
Sometimes I still miss you
Sometimes too much I think of you
But I smile like you wanted me to
I’ll laugh my heart out
Dance over my own music
Lie on my own tears to dry
Walk alone away from you
Till you I forget and let go.
Today you go on
Live on guiltless
You don’t have to smile at me anymore
You don’t have to convince yourself anymore
Tell yourself anything concerning me
I’m none of your business anymore
You can forget about me
And all things I needed you to be to me
I am ok
If not now, I will be
Without you in it.
