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.
