    It’s sweet
    So sweet to everyone who is anyone but me
    Sweet because you laid down your heart in front of my feet
    Your words were so loving and full of regret
    So everyone who is anyone but me could
    Actually fathom your audacity and was able to call it sweet
    I glance at your words
    Re-read the words you didn’t have the guts to speak directly
    Because you didn’t want me to break your heart with rejection
    But yet
    365 days plus passed and electronic affection and my subjection to your true feelings
    Should keep me from shutting you down
    You’re praying that what you did hasn’t made me so bitter that I would just be a bold lil ***** by telling you exactly what’s on my mind
    Keep praying
    Because the more I read this ****
    The less I can even try to understand it
    Where were these words when I loved you more than life?
    Where was your need to express when I was dying to receive it?
    This is so sweet
    Sweet to everyone who is anyone but me because
    My feelings fluctuate from the highest degree of passivity to
    It being entirely too funny
    I can’t even express this the way I want to
    Because I loosed you and all your bull-**** about 60 days after you said we were through
    You were so tough then
    Now I look down at you as you lay in front of my feet
    I could break you
    But I won’t
    I won’t because I have heart and I forgave you for what you did
    I am a woman on the move who lacks time to entertain you
    I’m done
    I have closed our book and shoved it to the back of the shelf
    Because instead of ******* me you ended up ******* yourself
    So in the end, even I could find the situation sweet
    Sweet to absolutely no one who is anyone but me
