Better off


Am I happier?

I think so

All this time

Never feeling this

Oh I’ve missed out

Weights lifted off my chest

A breath of fresh air

Not clouded by my unruly judgment


I believe that’s the right word

To describe this feeling

This feeling of lightness

This feeling of brightness

I’m better off now

Now that I’ve put myself first

Better than how I was

Waiting the the wings

Unwanted and sad

I’m happier now

Better off now

This is about feeling better after getting over a really unhealthy relationship. I felt so free once I realized what had been going on the whole time, I was freed once I finally let go of a bad situation
