Violin (Photo credit: pellaea)

I withdraw from you
I’m moving further for a safer view

I decline your voice
I used to kid myself I had a choice

Ah then, but we both know
You played me like a violin on show

I disavow all you
Have said and done and put me through

I decline your charm
You’ll find another who will take your arm

And let our history show
I knew you better when I let you go

I withdraw my heart
I fared much better once we were apart

I detest your name
And all the pettiness you trade for fame

And in the end we’ll know
There was no further left for us to go

    People need to step back to get a proper view of me. I’m too wide to take in at close range.

  3. “And let our history show
    I knew you better when I let you go” so true and knew yourself better as well i’d wager.

    fills in the spaces
    the person
    we thought
    we knew
