I Am Leaving You - Poem by Leslie Alexis

I petrify in your mind and waste away in your hands.

I was given to you fresh - brand new -

But you took me and did your do.

I was used, taken for a fool, and abused.

I loved you and was always wrongfully accused.

The kicks, the punches didn’t hurt as much as your words.

Just one, “beautiful” or one, “I love you” would have been enough.

I am not worthless, not ugly... But I am too good for you.

I am priceless, royalty, deserving of a royalty too,

And this is the reason that I am leaving you…
