Favorite Quote:
I can do all things through christ who gives me strength

Leaving you broke my heart
Every moment without you tore me apart
Staying though, always caused pain
No more sun, always rain

I was tired of that constant ache
My happiness you always tried to take
I was sick of the all the lies
All my heart breaks you never realized

i never received, yet I always gave
Complete devastation, I was trying to save
Each day a piece of my heart flew away
I hated being mute and never having a say

I was sick and tired of living in fear
Every night my pillows stained with tears
That love I once had went away
Little by little every day

I wish now we could both go back
To see all the little things our love lacked
Forgiveness, understanding, compassion and more
I wanted to stay and see our love soar

I'm sorry to say this is how it has to be
Everything got so much, especially your jealousy
All the anger, sadness, fights and rage
I felt like a hungry Lion in a cage

The memories we have, I'll always cherish
Even though our love had to perish
i hope you are happy with whatever you do
But this is why I left you

I use writing poetry to express my emotions and how I feel. I wrote this piece about a bad break up I had.
