Strength In Love

Days went by,
Addictions grew,
I loved to get high,
When I met you,

Still I continued,
Didn't care at all,
But then you cried,
So I answered your call,

I felt so bad,
I wanted to run,
Seeing you like that,
I thought we were done,

Took you for granted,
I blew it again,
I was so stupid,
I couldn't breathe when,

You broke up with me,
I couldn't help but cry,
I didn't want to live,
I wanted to die,

I wanted to suffer,
Ever so much more,
Than any other pain,
Or misery before,

I died in my own way,
I knew I'd done wrong,
So for the sake of us,
I tried to be strong.

Tears in my eyes,
I spoke to you,
I said no lies,
My words were all true.

    Very touching. It seems the dysfunction in love is often what we often become addicted to. And losing someone you love truly does feel like part of you died inside. Very well written.

    Loss love well defined. Keep writing. Sara
