It all makes sense nowYour games have come to lifeI see I play the fool
I thought I played the wifeHindsight’s 20/20And I see it clearly nowThis needed to happenSomeway, somehowI loved you trueRight to the endNow I’m unsureCan we even be friends?You’ve had my heartFor too many yearsYou had me unconditionallyWhile I had pain and tearsThe tears gathered in a puddleAround my feetLiquid shackles so heavyThey made me weakSo heavy and burdenedMy soul could’ve diedThe hope of your loveIs what kept me aliveI’m drowning, can’t breathe nowWith my last dying breathI reach out to GodAnd say to myself“No more can you hurt me”My eyes can now see“No more will I cry for you”And now I can breathe“No more will I wait”Slowly I can move“No more will I need you”I’ve got something to prove“No more will you use me”I can stand on my own“I will not be held downBy the chances that you’ve blown”The shackles are brokenThe tears have all driedMy prayers are answered
I feel better insideI may start at the bottomBut I’ll fight my way throughDon’t you worry about meYou’ve got plenty to doYou made this bedAnd in it you’ll lieThis is my wayOf saying GoodbyeThis entry was posted in Poetry, RandomTags: breaking up, independent, leaving, love, pain, relationships, strength, strongAbout T he Author: shannonmaximI am a 29 year old mother of two girls.
