Found someone new NOT you (Sonnet)

Happiness is all I ever wanted
But loving you is like a dying weed
The actions that you portrayed assaulted
The way you talk to me can only feed

The hatred I once felt for you is gone
In my search I have found somebody new
Who handles me like a delicate fawn
When I am sick makes the best chicken stew

I would always love this guy more than you
Even though you once treated me so good
Just thinking about it makes me feel blue
I don't know how I managed and withstood

But it's okay though because I fought through
And I have found somebody new NOT you
