You smile so sweet as your lies tear into me.
You hug me a little too tightly.
You say my name a little too politely.
I walk away and you plead.
But you were always the one stopping me from being freed.
Thankful for the tears.
Blessed to know love in the darkest of my years.
It was you who introduced me to my deepest fears.
I lay my head down to rest, may love fight this battle for me.
No matter what I did, no matter what you did, being loved was always going to be my destiny.
You did your best to try to convince me to believe my home was in pain and suffering.
Truth be told, I still struggle some days and I’m still healing and recovering.
Love has many enemies, but none of them could ever win.
You come knocking at my door, and we both know I won’t let you in.
No, you won’t be let in.
