I never knew what love was…
& I need the time to figure it all out in my mind.
Watching my whole life through a more loving perspective,
Sometimes you have to experience cruelness to know the depth of what is kind.
I’ve felt the rush of tears,
Struggled to love myself all these years.
Little girls who grow up in empty homes learn how to fake a smile.
When I let go & let myself feel peace, a love I never knew stayed awhile.
Loving you left me sleeping with fear.
Loving you taught me how to disappear.
Take a moment, take a breath to let go.
I still don’t know if there was anything real underneath your elaborate show.
Loving me saved me.
Loving me now & endlessly.
Let me take this broken heart & allow it to heal tonight.
After decades of darkness, I choose to live in love’s light.
