I gave away my heart for nothing…

Because that’s just how I was taught.

Self esteem never held together…

He made me feel as if my soul could be bought.

And forgiveness…it comes with time and space.

Memories linger on the surface of your face.

This whole time I had you on white pedestals and golden crowns.

But you didn’t have any real love for me as you broke me down.

I still have scars and I bleed when I cry.

When you hurt me I cling onto false hope…and I try….and I try.

I poured my heart and wished it would bring you joy.

And when I truly needed you…your words simply destroy.

She carries her heart on her sleeve…

But she didn’t see the daggers when he deceived.

You don’t know how deeply you stabbed me when I said no.

I’m still recovering from the wounds of a lifetime ago.
