WORST ENEMY by Jeff Callaway (Texas Outlaw Poet)

 

happy days

are upon me now

I know I’m never

gonna be the same

now that you’re out

of my life for good

and I can remember

my own name

 

I was always

the wild child

upon whom you’d place

your blame

 

but I’m loving

my new life now

and I’m embracing

every single change

I’m accepting life

on life’s terms now

and I’m learning from

the choices I’ve made

because I know I no longer

have to play the pawn

in your sick and

twisted game

 

and I praise

the Lord’s good name

for each and

every single day

that I escaped your

insidious zoo

because I’m the wild animal

you could never ever tame

no matter how hard

you tried to

 

don’t you know

little girl I’ve moved on

now a long time ago from you

and I’m glad you finally

said what you really think

long after we been through

 

but you’ve taken

no responsibility

for your actions

or the pain that

you put me through

 

all you ever do

is try to pass your lies

off as truth

 

as if the color red

was really blue

 

and I wouldn’t wish you

on my worst enemy it’s true

but my worst enemy is you

so I’ll wish you on you

 

because

you give love

such a bad bad name

the red flag stuck

in the hole

where your heart

used to be

reads

narcissistic

and insane

 

and I wouldn’t wish you

on my worst enemy it’s true

but my worst enemy is you

so I wish you on you

 

all your many personalities

deserve each other
