How Dare You!

How dare you do this to me?
How dare you stand there and let us be?
You not wanting this marriage and working late is how this began.
I now know this has to end.
I have a responsibility to be strong and be there for our boys.
They are humans; they are not toys.
They want, they need their dad
Instead of wishing and being sad.
How dare you do this to me and I go on and let this be.
How dare you stay married to me all these years
And stand back and watch my tears.
I know you don't want me, and I know this much is true.
I am stronger now instead of being blue.
To tell you the truth I don't care anymore.
Your lies and you I no longer stand for or adore.
You stole my heart, my pride, my soul.
You are not a human; you are just cold.
You don't love me or want to be married; I don't know how many times I have to be told,
But I realize now you were being you just bitter and cold.
How dare you do this to me and stand there and let this be.
Do you feel pain or are you just mad?
For once in your cold life I want you to feel sad.
Payback is hell and that is what you deserve
And I hope you will feel pain and unwanted every day in every way.
How dare you do this to me;
I have to let go, and I now know this is how it has to be.
I will eventually need to pack up and leave. 
When we say our goodbyes,
I will be drying my eyes.
How dare you wanting to leave
I just have to realize we were never meant to be.
