Mesmerized by impossible illusions, caught in a web of false promises along your star touched eyes, but my heart desired to be blinded by all the beautiful, fragile lies.  Hold me tightly to have me & I’ll forever erase the memories you caged me in with sweet, serenades of violence. Falling in love with fractured mirages & fear induced fires. All I could see was your endless light. Invisible bruises still engrave the deepest corners of my mind…

Sipping despair from silver cups becomes a sacred, seductive kind of addiction. My hands drove in the direction of perfect self destruction. Centuries to break free from what you & I did to me. For all the love I always needed, it was the one you could never truly give. No, you just didn’t have enough to give. Love keeps showing me how to let go and forgive…

I found my way…through darkness & dreams. Shadows pass harmlessly through abandoned, empty places. I’ve left you safely in the kindest of distant spaces.

My home and heart finally full with life, laughter, & love.
