“A lesson so valuable”

A lesson so valuable...

And from that moment I knew exactly what I needed to do.
I needed to love myself more than I loved you.
For although I had given my all, it was never enough.
Until one day I woke up and realised, this is not love.
Empath….I had never before heard this term.
But now awoken, finally I began to learn.
A lesson so valuable, more than I had ever felt.
A game, but my hand soon to change from the cards you once dealt.
I finally saw the tears you cried from dry eyes.
I finally heard the words you spoke, all lies.
That sacred day, I took back my power.
The strength of the Narcissist I once loved, now in it’s final hour.
