You took so many things from me:
Smiles, laughter, enjoyment,
Growth, learning, discovery,
Success, opportunities, fulfillment.

For you it was so easy,
You only needed a minute to take hold,
And then my every minute after
Was spent in your shadow.

I will need every minute you took from me
To take myself back,
But these minutes will be mine
And mine alone.

I can never get that time back,
But I will throw you away
Like you threw away
Three years of my life.
