When There is A World Without You

All I ever wanted was to hear your voice on the phone  
That would tell me that everything was going to be okay,  
But I know I had to get back to reality and the fact that  
You would never come crawling back to me. I am all alone  
In the place I used to call home and the dark, cloudy gray  
Sky is just a reminder that I would better without a flat  
Smile. I know I am better without the empty promises and  
The fact that you want to keep talking now that I am moving  
Onto someone new. It is like you want to keep messing with  
Me, but you have to know that it is too late to understand  
Everything from your point of view. I am safely removing  
Myself from this. I hoped you would do the same. The myth  
That keeps surrounding you will follow you until there is dirt  
Over your grave and your heart has finally given up for good.  
It is only then that you will realize that there was someone  
Who truly cared about you. I hope you understand the hurt  
And pain you caused me, enough to last a lifetime. I could  
Have gone back to refill your empty cup, but I do not run  
Back to someone who has not changed their repeating  
Patterns and bad habits. My words that are the carriers  
Of the truth and my sky has finally gone from gray to blue.  
There is no way that I could keep walking and meeting  
You halfway when you cannot even respect my barriers  
Because I am finally in a better place. I am finally over you.
