    How could I misplace that which makes me
    I retrace my wrong laid footprints
    And they lead me to your distasteful action
    Actions with which you supported with your
    Contorted opinions or so you called facts on
    My non-independence
    And how even though we had bound ourselves
    Stayed ourselves
    Gave ourselves
    I just didn’t know how to be by myself
    And so after five years and
    Vows spoken of truth in better or worse
    In your worse you worsened the situation
    By moving the continuation of our lives
    Out the door
    My options were no more my limitations
    Were beyond limits
    I screamed silent help
    Leave or be left is what laid at my doorstep
    And so each day I passed you looked at you
    You trashed me looked through me
    Tried to school me and tell me what I am and what I’m not
    What I did and what I didn’t do
    When in actuality in all truth
    What I will claim is having
    Mislaid my love in you
    I should have known given our past love trail
    Reality of life ****s bitterness of lives of fairytales
    I admit things were stale
    But you straight nailed my frail heart
    Paid my bail
    Got me out of my jail cell before even trying
    To pray heaven to kill our hell
    I misplaced my self
    I lost my self
    When I gained you
    Looked to lies and mislaid truth
    And the truth is
    My loves value is priceless
    But somehow you managed to price it
    Less and
    Less
    Until your less
    Became my best
    The best thing that ever happened to me
