Deep breaths and Slow steps.
In. out. In. out
One. Two. One. Two.
Deep breaths and slow steps
Is what keeps me from going insane.
I take it slow so I can process everything.
What’s done is done and can’t be taken back.
You skipped town and skipped out on me. On us.
Looking back I can’t help but feel stupid for not noticing
All of the signs. You were coming home late at night.
You were going on more business trips than you ever have.
You’d get calls in to middle of the night that you leave the room to answer.
How long had it been since you truly looked me in my eyes?
When was the last time you told me you loved me?
It’s been so long since you’ve kissed me on anywhere but the cheek.
I thought we were going places; dating for three years engaged for six months.
We were what our friends called the dream team.
We had our futures mapped out before us, we were going places.
We were going to travel the world then settle down and have kids.

What happened to us? What did I do to make you not want me anymore?
Did I stop being pretty in your eyes? I don’t understand, we were perfect.

Its tough going through my day, all I want to do is cry. I see couples together and
It hurts so bad that I just want to die. I have to take each day slowly, because if I don’t, and I take it too fast the pain will be too much to handle. So each day I just take deep breaths and slow steps.
