Beautiful Mistakes and Moving On

April 3, 2017

You made me fall

You shot me down

I was standing tall

Now I'm on the ground


You took my heart

You changed it's shape

By the time I realized

It was far too late


You stole my heart

Like a thief in the night

You were pulling me into darkness

When I thought you were my light


You played with my emotions

You took my trust for granted

But now you've gone

And I'm left here stranded


My head built a caste

To guard my heart

Letting you in was a mistake

I should've seen from the start


You said I deserved to be loved

Said you'd always be with me

Then someone else came around

And you decided to ditch me


You reinforced my lack of trust

With your sly and cunning words

I couldn't see through your deception

I couldn't see I was getting hurt


Falling in love was a mistake

You shattered my world like ice

I took a risk on you

And now I'm paying the price


You were a landmine

I never saw it coming

One moment I'm fine

The next I'm exploding


You broke down my walls

The ones I've built up for years

You left, now I'm vunerable 

One of my very worst fears


Why did I belive you

And all your beautiful lies?

Dressed like an angel

You were a demon in disguise


You promised you would fix me

Once you found out I was broken

I thought you were serious

But you were just jokin'
