When you find yourself
Crying to sleep
When your cuts are just too deep
When right before you thought it was going okay
You find your cheeks tear-stained, in the middle of the day.
When you dread speaking your mind
To avoid argument of any kind
For everything seems to spark a conflict
Maybe its time to realize
Heartbreak is the drug,
You are an addict.
That’s when you must look in the mirror
Look in your eyes, you’ll see fear.
Fear of being alone, not love my darling
And that right there is a good point for starting.
Pack your bags, emotionally or otherwise,
For a day mourn the relationship’s demise.
For a day, I say and not a second more,
For your heart has witnessed love turn to gore.
Sweet nothings turn to a bitter after taste in your mouth,
after you take their name
And not your happiness, but your sanity is now in doubt.
Leave, and run, far and away, somewhere they can’t find you again,
All your lost strength, try to regain.
Build yourself, this time stronger than before
For now, you have seen, the horrors love has in store.
But don’t give up on love my darling
For somewhere, there is someone who has gone through the same
Maybe one day, when you meet them, this shall make sense.
But if you don’t, that’s okay too
Because the person who loves you the most has to be you.
