MISTAKES I WON'T MAKE AGAIN

  1. I used to think that you were the best thing that ever happened to me
  2. but now I know that I was the best damn thing to happen to you.
  3. and every second I stayed with you,
  4. you took little pieces of me.
  5. so small,
  6. that I barely noticed they were disappearing.
  7. until one day, I looked in the mirror and no longer liked the reflection I saw.
  8. all I know is that
  9. it takes so much longer to find the pieces and steal them back
  10. than it did to lose them in the first place.
