Out Of The Shadows

A littered path of dreams that lay broken.
Humbled desires strewn over this road.
These are the sorrows that need to be spoken.
This is the bearing of love's grievous load.

Eating your sweet lies just like they were candy;
nourishing me to the depths of my heart.
Purely believed you so I kept my love handy.
But you buccaneered my soul right from the start.

Sank into darkness in the depths of my sorrow.
Cobblestoned furies that led to my door.
Relief was far-flung and a smile couldn't borrow.
Was a fish out of water lying dead on the shore.

Then after the longest time I began healing;
bearing some scars from the damage you'd done.
Out of the shadows I bounced with a feeling
of sweet retribution and war that's been won.

I no longer feel grief when someone speaks of you.
You don't hold a place in my soul any more.
Live out your life and I'll surely rise above you.
No trace is left of the heart that you tore
