living with you was a dream wrapped in nightmares…

my heart and soul never felt so alone…

but you took away my agency to break free…

and only I truly know the damage it did to me….

but the worst part of it was believing this was love….

everything upside down…

where my feet never touched the ground…

I’m trading in these memories for….

a love that is simply more….

more kind and more forgiving…

because the way you loved…

was imprisonment, not living…

and it’s okay if you want to choose that life…

one in constant fear and endless strife…

but it was not the one meant for me…

and it was never my job to make you ever see….
