BREATH

It is said there’s two sides to every story,
I decided to tell mine so you do not have all the glory.
In the beginning it is was love at first sight,
Until the your infidelity started the fights.

It is said that life challenges become worst before they can be better,
I can not believe that is true of you and I together.
You are damaged to the core,
I have tried to love you but I can not fight this losing battle of love anymore.

Your tongue drains blood from my veins with every noun and verb,
Your behavior and character has become absurd.

I used to believe the words you said as you put me down,
I now see my reflection and prefer to smile and not frown.
I vowed my heart to you in a forever promise,
Not knowing I would become lost in your world without a compass.

Like a knight in shining armor I gave you a shield,
Like a scarecrow you left me in an empty field.
In my heart there is still love inside,
As I will always hold memories of us in my mind.
To always rewind and remind why I turned from you and left,
While in my life there is still breath.
