You Can't Break Me
The only reason you gave me when you said goodbye was that you
wanted a break until we both learned to set aside our pasts.
But itís been a week since you talked to me,
so Iím assuming it was just an excuse to get rid of me,
Kind of like a way to say you wanted to break up without
actually saying it and sounding like the bad guy.
But what I didnít get to say, what I really wanted to say,
is that if you couldnít accept what I was, well too bad.
Because if you couldnít handle the truth about me,
I hope you werenít expecting me to lie to you just to make myself
the perfectly manicured, skin-and-bones, no life and no brains kind of girl.
Iím not going to change to make you like me, and I shouldnít have to.
I need a guy who knows the real me, and still likes the person he sees.
I need a guy who will kiss the scars on my arms instead of cover them with
his hands so his parents wonít see them and wonder why their
son is dating a girl who could never come to terms with her life.
I need a guy who is everything like the amazing sweet guy you
were to me, but nothing like the hideous jerk you turned out to be.
I guess you could say I had a lot of fun being around you,
The drive in movies, the dancing to Sweet Home Alabama,
the watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer until midnight,
and of course the kisses we snuck when no one was looking.
But then again, the fighting every night, the look you gave me
when I did something wrong, the ďoh really?Ē comment whenever
I told you something, and the way you walked away when
I told you I was just a little messed up.
That I donít miss.
But I do miss your hugs, the safety of your house,
the kisses from your dogs and you of course.
Iíll miss you, thereís no denying it.
And I really did like you, maybe I even loved you.
But right now, after you telling me that I needed
to let go of my past, of who I really am,
I donít have to like you.
So glare at me all you want in the halls, and
tell all your friends how crazy and evil I was to you.
But you canít break me.
You canít break a girl who thinks nothing of you.
