What doesn't kill me

I succumbed to your game like the moth to the flame,
Overly flattered you'd tweeted my name.
So I opened myself and gave you my page,
Arranged a date to spill my guts on the stage,
You told me I'd smash it; well what can I say?

Elated I told you just how it had felt,
Asking for nothing more than your help.
I waited for days to see what you would say,
Vain wastes of my time and emotional space,
Cos now you got fame, a celebrity name,
You're above your old self now your profile's been raised.

But this ain't a statement of hate, just my rage won't abate

So as I take tentative steps into the race
Put a new muse on the pedestal from which you came,
Erase my embarrassment and painful shame
That I placed such faith in one so lame,
I gain strength from the pain flowing through my veins
And I write these lines and hone my phrase
That contains disdain for how you behaved
I see clear past the tears that caused a haze
And I move to prove that I can still amaze

So don't be too flattered, cos my pride got battered
You should be ashamed of the dream you shattered.
