Beautifully Broken

You told me I was beautiful












Made me believe it with your touch












I gave you everything that I had












Even after I’d already let you take too much

























I was blinded from the start












Hid my fears when you wrapped me in your embrace












Convinced myself that your darkness wasn’t real












Even though it was all written in your face


























You told me I was beautiful












Made me believe it with your kiss












But still I didn’t give you enough












Because in the end it was a hit and miss


























I wanted to be with you forever












I thought you were the one












But I shouldn’t have tried to see a man












In a boy when there was none

























You told me I was beautiful












I finally know it’s true












I know you think you broke me












But truth is in the end the broken one is you

This is so passionate, the rhyme scheme is interesting.
