Happy again

a poem by Karen .

My throat constricts
As I remember all those times
You said you loved me
In elaborate poems and rhymes
What happened then?
What transpired in between?
Did you get bored and move on
Or did those promises nothing mean?
I’m sitting alone here now
Staring into the dark
Trying to put together pieces of me
Where you’d once left your mark
I wonder what I did wrong
Where did I falter
But what’s the point now
It all doesn’t matter
All that matters now
Is that you broke my heart
Knowing very well
It had already once been torn apart
So here’s my goodbye
Although you’re already long gone
I don’t wish you happiness
Nor that you get all that you want
How a disease is eradicated
I want to be rid of you too
I want to be happy again
And happy again without you
