Pain.

I never truly knew

The meaning of that word.

Until now.

 

Love.

I was never truly shown

The full extent of this emotion.

Until now.

 

Betrayal.

I had always assumed it would come

From my partner, not from me.

Until now.

 

Regret.

I had a few regrets

But none as colossal as this

Until now.

 

Hate.

A feeling I have known well,

Directed mostly toward myself,

But not like this.

 

Until now,

I had assumed I would be the one broken,

Not the one crushing someone.

Until tonight.
