Bittersweet Victory

Last night it was hard to breathe,
your betrayal suffocating me
and the trust I had in you.
Your apathy sat on my chest and
crushed my heart
till I squeezed shut my overflowing eyes
against the pain.
Last night it was hard to be quiet,
your absence taunting me and
the unsaid words on my tongue.
Your silence lodged in my throat
and muted my voice
till I squeezed my burning lips
tight against the rage.
But today the Sun shines blindingly again,
and I can breathe deep the scent of my triumph,
and my heart still beats its pounding rhythm.
Yeah, today the Earth still spins on its beautiful tilt,
and I can speak again of the love we shared,
even if you arent listening,
and today I can laugh without you here,
and yeah, I can illuminate this place with my smile again,
even if you arent looking.
