Felt Like Home
Felt Like Home
I clung to every word you said, convinced my heart and convinced my head.
Believed that at last I was safe to feel, a deeper meaning of a love that’s real.
Every time with every night that came, you held me tight, over and over again.
Skin to skin with my head against your chest, you’d kiss my forehead so I would
No words need be spoken, in anyway, touch spoke more than any words could say.
A soothing feeling, the daily stress would go, somehow your arms just seemed to
On the rarest of nights, if the day brought grey skies, in your arms I was safe to let
Out a cry.
I couldn’t hold it back, you’d know if I tried, ‘it’s ok’ you’d whisper , wiping my eye.
In the past I was scared, I would bottle it all, I’d drown in my tears being too scared to
Never trusting another soul, to hold me tight, I’m not so strong as the day turns into
You never let me down, you were just you, it had crossed my mind you were too good to be true.
Consistent as always, you’ve proved the thought wrong, I knew right then what it was like to belong.
Then in an instant, something had changed, in just one day nothing felt the same.
I felt it sink, my heart into my gut, I began to notice that things didn’t add up.
This wasn’t how it was supposed to be, my entire world crashed, right on top of me.
Pretending I was fine, soon it became too tough, seeing things change just hurt
Suddenly now, I didn’t feel as though I belonged, you made me believe that I had done you wrong.
I even told you I loved you, yet a game you did play, so I did the thing you couldn’t and I walked away.
