I once counted all the ways you hurt me… Never knew it was slowly and surely imprisoning the part that needed to be free… All the injustice and wrongs played on repeat in my mind… And everywhere I looked…you were all I could ever find… But as the seasons came and left….and the days turned…

Used To

I used to dwell in shades of pain and rage… I used to re-read everything you ever said and did…unwilling to turn the page… You hurt me this is true… But at some point in time I let you become the nightmare of my own world views… But I wanted to heal… That meant giving…

Addiction

Tired of living in the past…the pages burned to dust… Life can take twisted turns…but we do what we must… Childhood memories and scars were the reasons my heart chose not to trust… And it all comes around full circle…..when I think about the story of us…. For so long haunted by what used to…

I don’t need money…it won’t fill my heart… I don’t need more promises…it won’t give me a new start… Love can make you fly and leave you broken apart… But I wouldn’t trade a single moment of it all… Because you can’t have dreams without the risk of a fall… I would bet it all…
