Closure

Closure
That’s all I need
A simple little thing that will set me free
A seven letter word that
Controls,
Lifts,
Obliterates,
Shreds,
Unifies, and
Releases,
Events

Closure
That’s all I need
Something to control this sickening need
To want your approval that needs no approving.
Something to tell me that this has ended a long time ago
And that I’m holding onto a reality that no longer holds true.

Closure
That’s all I need
Something to lift the burden of you from my shoulders
Not because I am weak but because I am strong
Enough to stand without you breathing down my neck
Making every step I take uncomfortable.

Closure
That’s all I need
Something to obliterate the delusion that
You actually cared for me when in reality
I cared enough for the both of us and it made
Your presence a poison choking the life from me.

Closure
That’s all I need
Something to rip to shreds the pages of love
Songs and poetry I wrote about you
While everyone around me assured me that I was not
Crazy for thinking we had something.

Closure
That’s all I need
Something to unify this anger and passion brewing
Inside this once kind heart that you turned
Cold and bitter toward the thought of trusting
Someone again.

Closure
That’s all I need
Something to release this tortured soul from
Your serpent like tongue deceiving
Those around you to eat the forbidden fruit of
Your lies that contradict your actions.

Closure
That’s all I need
Something to correct the events in the past
That has led me to this drawn out conclusion;
It’s not what I want.
Just what I need.

I love how after all of what you said you still feel the need to hold onto this person. We have all felt like that at sometime in our lives. I hope its worth holding onto. :)

That is true. But it's not always wise to hold onto something when you're the only one trying. Just be careful.
