How Could You?

How could you seduce me,

They way you knew you would?

How could you betray me,

Like you said you never could?

How could you disguise,

The truth you had towards me?

How could you portray her as,

The girl I’ll never be?

How could you ever act,

Like we had something more?

How could you ever hit me

Right down to my dead heart’s core?

How could you have known,

To break my heart right now?

How could you have known,

That this was something I wouldn’t allow?

How could you have said,

There was nothing special between you two?

How could you have said to me,

“I’ll always be here for you”?

How could you have torn me apart,

And known the consequence?

How could you have ripped out my soul,

And gotten past my defense?

How could you have been so mean,

And not told me earlier on?

How could you have been so indifferent,

And force my feelings to be gone?

How could you be so selfish,

And not tell me the truth?

How could you be so naïve,

Knowing this has nothing to do with my youth?

How could you not understand,

What I meant when I sent the Text?

How could you not even see,

The feelings I was up to next?

How could you not have known,

This would tear our friendship apart?

How could you not have known,

This would only be the start?

How could you have done this to me,

And knew what I’d rather do,

Than face the pain I’m feeling now,

That has everything to do with you?

How could you not have known,

How I truly do feel?

How could you not have known,

It was my heart that you would steal?

How could you even think,

I’d ever want to talk once more?

How could you even think that I,

Would ever let you through my heart’s door?

How could you not know,

I’d cry as hard as now?

How could you not know,

Why I ask you how?

How could you dream of me,

And say there’s something there?

How could you even tell me that,

And say you meet me elsewhere?

How could I have let you,

Do something like this to me?

How could I not have known,

That I should have just let you be?
