You’ll know.

When the tears dry and you’re indifferent in familiar places

The memories begin to fade and you don’t wait for a call that will never come

That song doesn’t make you die inside, you don’t cry when you hear their name

You’re no longer afraid to love again…

Closure arrives and you’re grateful for the moment

That’s when you’ll know.

Picture Perfect

You didn’t get the picture until you were out of it…

I was constantly sandwiched between asinine thoughts of ‘true love is like this’ and ‘it’s supposed to feel this way’

I invested in you and it cost me everything I was…

You’d leave and I’d still pray that wherever you were, the stars lit your night skies

While you preyed on my sincerity

Doing everything in my power to get you to come back safely regardless of the extent of the damage you caused when you left…

My loyalty to you, was deeply rooted

Hopeless to eradicate…

I wasn’t lost

I knew my worth

I didn’t fear you

I didn’t even need you

I just despised being alone until loneliness became familiar

You’d “change” when you thought you were losing me

Then retrocede when I’d return for more

Repeatedly rebounding…

I saturated the pillows with my feelings for you until I was empty


She fractured her own feelings because he always favored leaving

Futile and frustrated she was tired of being mistreated

Dealing with all his demons

Apologies that held no meaning

Friends ask why don’t you leave him?

Concealing her doltish reasons

The beatings cheating and bleeding

Began feeding into his dreaming

Once appealing now has her reeling

Sealing the spot of weakling

Mistakes You Made

You have to go through hell to appreciate heaven

I nearly drowned saving you and you fell in love with your reflection

Once so familiar you’re now a stranger to me

Best friends with a love expired

We tasted bittersweet

That’s the thing about you beloved…

I thought this fairytale was my reality, you gave me the world in an instant and then I felt like I didn’t exist

All at once…

I couldn’t breathe

You weren’t consistent

It’s like you had no soul and your sole purpose was to devastate what we created

I just wanted us to fix it, you didn’t need my two cents

Your scent still sent chills…but you left me no choice

I’m sleeping with her dreaming of you, I guess it’s true

It’s hard letting another person love you
