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'


The author's comments:

I wanted to write something about a past relationship, and honestly I wasn't quite sure how it would turn out. I didn't think. I didn't plan how to write this. I opened my journal and started writing and this is what I got. Because I was able to write all this down and get my feelings out I can now move on with my life and live it how I want to, and not stay caught up in the past. If you relate to this piece at all I hope it helps. Please enjoy!
