Free As Me
I can still feel the day you pulled away from my heart,
you broke it into two halves that could not form a whole.
You took my lifeblood when you vanished from my life.
Draining my body until there was not one drop remaining
All my emotions I have spent, trying to figure out what I might have done that was so wrong to make you leave.
Wasted them crying over you, how could I be that stupid?.
From here on out I am free of your emotional stranglehold..
As of now you no longer own me or my spent emotions.
You broke my heart once ,and that’s all you get.
There wont be a second chance reconciliation.
I shed a tear for you no more, mine eyes cold and dry.
I allow the sun to fall on my soul and heal the damages.
I bare my hurts to the world, vulnerable and naked.
Asking for the vigor to live in a world I don't understand.
There will be no one around, to bring me down again.
And there will be no one who will be as free as me.
