This is me
Laughing at a movie
With my friends
Something I haven’t done
Since we started dating
Enjoying myself
Celebrating out separation
Loving my space
Wondering why I hadn’t done this
A long time ago

This is you
Still dumbstruck that
I dumped you
The awesome and most
Desired guy at school
The quarterback.
Sitting in your car listening
To the old cds I burned for you
Wondering how in the world
I could be so stupid as to
Dump you

This is me
Passing you in the halls
Without so much as a hello
Loving your angered expression
Ignoring your last 11 messages
Going on a date with the cute guy
In the back of my history class

This is you
Doubting my importance
And going out with the head cheerleader
Spending an hour with her
Suddenly realizing that she can’t compare with
Me and that you might not
Be able to replace me
As easily as you had thought
That maybe I was special

This is me
Knowing I was special
Looking for someone who
Can take care of me
And who will know that I am
Not a thing to owned
But a person to be loved
