Look at this smile,
I'm as happy as can be,
Finally starting to forget about you and me.
No more pot-shots to my ego,
One last knife still stuck in my back,
My self-esteem is something I no longer lack.
You would build me up,
Only to tear me down,
But lo and behold I'm still around.
This grin on my face,
It's for all of your mistakes,
Knowing one day you will realize you're just a snake.
When that day comes,
I will only be laughing,
Watching as you try to keep your boat from capsizing.
