You First

Broken in two is the way You wanted me Swimming in my tears some nights Not realizing that was only the beginning Endless pain, constant reminders of my faults Never being good enough to love But a target for your hate You shattered what little confidence I had You built me up Only to be the one to tear me down Always making sure I knew I was damaged Causing me to hide from the world Destroying what was left of myself So that no one would know the true me The one that you made me ashamed to show The very things that made me unique You hated the way I love Because I stop putting you first So you made me second guess everything I doubted my every move Depending only on you You shackled my mind While bolting my heart to your dart board You spoke hate, with a smile Your touch was like acid rain Your presence dried my bones I lost my voice next to you Your life flourished While mine diminished You took my very breathe From me to survive I never had a chance to break free. ©wingedlioness
