addiction lies to you and promises freedom…

but the sweet tears are stained in colder memories…

I never wanted to hate myself the way he hated me…

never wanted to escape one prison and create another inside of me…

sometimes we hurt the ones we love when we can’t win the battle inside…

sometimes we feel we have no other options but to bury the shame and continue to hide…

but the best thing you can do for yourself is to heal…

let yourself feel everything you need to feel…

so you can finally let go….

people have a million layers underneath a mask they never show…

the pain…still unwanted…forces us to grow…

still the journey I had to take alone…

when I learned how to love myself…

I finally found a home…
