    I was the mistake, not our last time.
    I knew it the moment
    we shared out last kiss,
    our last touch,
    our last unawkward conversation
    the last time i skipped from your door
    in clothes worn the night before
    It was then that my heart settled in the pit of my stomach
    rising into my chest, burning cold.
    I was your mistake.
    The one you made a thousand times
    covering me in sweat and lies.
    I was your mistake.
    And, i continue to allow you to rewind the time
    to repeat the same error at my expense
    how smart am I to lack such common sense.
    I am his mistake.
    A night turned into a year and still
    i'm holding onto you for the mistaken chance
    that you might hold me in hypnotic glance
    and make me understand how we could be a mistake.
    Mistaken friendship for a relationship
    sex for intimacy
    conversation for opening chances
    i think how everything
    could have been (even though I never was)
    yet, you're the motherf*cker that always wins
    always strikes my ego and pride
    and I continue to try and try
    to make you understand why
    the value of you i continue to hold inside.
    I am the mistake.

    To vow
    to never be
    the mistake
    evermore
    opens
    the door
    to the light
    we've always longed for.

    PEACE QUEEN
