I spent days as a hollow shell

Sorting through my memories

Search for answers I could not see


I spent weeks in a bath of my own tears

Lost in endless backwards thoughts

Questioning everything I’d ever done

I spent months piecing myself back together

Finding beauty in a broken mess

I found a woman stronger than she ever knew she could ever be


I once believed that I did something wrong

That I deserved what I had coming

When you cut my heart open and drowned me in a sea of lover’s tears


They say love is blind and you blinded me

But my eyes were opened to the truth


You could never have loved me for me.
