I was a broken mess when you saw me ,
Unarmed , unguarded , open .
You took that opportunity and broke my walls ,
The walls that held the broken pieces together ,
And rebuilt it with ours .
You took me into safety ,
In this dark , dangerous world ,
You saved me from the predators ,
By being my protector .
You became the light to my soul ,
But I only filled your heart with darkness ,
You became my cure ,
I became your curse .
You nursed my wounds ,
Only for me to shoot you and leave you to die .
You planted the tree of our relationship,
While I poisoned it with betrayal .
I took your trust for granted ,
Your love as a weapon ,
Your care as a entitlement .
All those times I went out and kissed another’s lips ,
Right after you left lingering ones on my own ,
All those times I reigned the broken soul ,
I spent breaking you .
It crushed you when I went and built another’s wall ,
After crumbling ours with grenades .
I wouldn’t say I was mad , but I sure wasn’t thinking right ,
When I came back and expected everything to be the same
When I saw you the other day ,
Smiling for the first time after long ,
After all torture I put you through ,
After all the pain I caused .
The only thing I wanted was to hug you , to say I’m sorry ,
To say I was stupid , stupid to hurt someone like you ,
I wanted the revive our past ,
To run into your arms and turn things into the way it was before ,
Only to see someone else run into those arms instead ,
Only to see someone rebuilding the soul I left for dead.
