    You Are Heartbreak


    I felt like my heart was ripped from my chest
    And for a moment the whole world stopped
    After 3 years you tell me that it’s all been a lie?
    And that after all you couldn’t keep your **** in your pants

    My mind races with insane thoughts
    You look at me with the blankest of stares
    You disgust me
    I hate you
    I wish that I never played tag with you when I was 5
    I wish I never let my fist kiss be you when I turned 9
    I wish that I never lost my virginity to you
    I wish that 7 years later I never agreed to say “I do”

    But, I love you
    I have always loved you
    I loved you before I could spell my name
    I loved before I even knew what love was
    Our love was so pure and so simple then
    How did things get so messed up?
    You were my best friend and I yours.
    You used to be able to tell me anything
    Now you’re keeping secrets?
    I shared my life with you since before I can even remember.
    I wanted to share the rest with you.
    We WERE the fairytale.
    Then reality hits

    Forever doesn’t guarantee ****.
    Best friends is just two words
    Trust is a lie
    Love is a *****
    Honesty cheats daily with “Deception”

    Where do we go from here?
    If I throw you away, I throw away every last memory I have of my life.
    You were my smiles all those years when all I could do was cry
    When I detoxed, you were my 12 steps
    When I was getting hit, you were my knight
    Now all of a sudden the tables turn.

    You are the dragon
    You are the dark clouds
    You are the tears on my pillow
    You are what you saved me from for years.
    You are heartbreak.

    " You are what you saved me from for years.
    You are heartbreak. " I'm feeling you on this piece ALI...

    It's hard being a knight, but why leave the lady in more distress?
    Killing dragons, storming castles.. yet, can't get close to your heart. Weak flesh.. not able to be honest. Head up.. or Head down. Which one runs the man? One's on your shoulder.. the other in his hand. I know which one is stronger, one has desires and then. Head up, betrayed me, Head down's my friend. He is heartbreak.
