Without You 

She’s never been 

the intimidating type 

but still, she scares 

the shit out of you. 

You never saw her happy 

until she was gone 

and now her smile is 

something that has 

nothing to do with you. 

She’s happy without you.

She is bad ass without you. 

She is so much of everything 

on her own and none of it 

was your idea. 

That always was your 

biggest fear. 

But you should’ve been 

terrified when she never smiled, 

instead of doing nothing. 

Now you watch 

while she smiles 

a name that doesn’t even 

sound like yours.
