Carry my needs in yours, or yours in mine.
We never talk about how we are, but on paper we are doing just fine.
There’s a difference between love given freely,
And love given with a single desire for return, taken selfishly.
I never could tell the difference between the two.
Looking back I completely and blindly idolized you…
Until I saw in the mirror what your love was turning me into.
No more hate in my heart, the scars had long faded into courage.
Kindness gave me a new and different way, always there to care and to encourage.
As a child all I wanted was to impress and please.
As an adult, I found fear given in place of love can be the most fatal and addictive kind of disease.
We’re not perfect, I can’t claim to be any better.
I’ve said good bye to you in unsent and broken letters.
Never imagined we would never talk again, it’s a strange reality.
Sometimes what we once loved, we must leave when it prevents us from flying free.
