And just for thought...
I gave you my heart knowing what I was putting on the table.
Throwing my soul to the wind, I laid down with your.
I knew the dirt your hands carried.
You confessed your love and your dream for our future.
I knew I should have ran.
There was something about you that always fueled my reservations
but I ignored my intuition.
I fell for you because of nothing you had and for everything I lacked.
It was easy to love you, easy to fall to your charm.
You found me when I knew better to associate with a man like you
but just didn't care enough to walk away.
I continued on your destructive path.
You would look at me and my heart break.
You could say nothing for days and it would steal my thunder.
It was the life from my eyes that you took from me
but I have never blamed you for the choices I made.
I would have loved you even if I had never spoken the words.
Your charm was hard to resist.
Those eyes deceived me, there was no hidden truth for me.
You ate my heart out eagerly while I only observed in the background.
You stained my skin with the residue you brought to our bed
though you thought I would never feel what they left behind.
I tried to save us even though I never thought we had a chance.
You gave no concern.
I was not surprised when you walked out that door.
I knew from the first moment you take my love and I would run.
You play to your own rules,
devouring innocent hearts as you move along.
I can't say I regret you, not all of you at least, just maybe the I do part,
Out of you, I got the most precious gift.
You were my second chance at love and you failed me.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
