Losing You

My Broken Heart

I made you the center of my universe,

but you rocked my world.


I was blinded

by what I thought was forever.


But rose-colored glasses

warp the truth.


You made promises 

you couldn't keep.


You hurt me and

didn't apologize.


You led me in a dance

that left me contorted.


You burned me but slow enough

I didn't notice my skin was singed.


You torn down my forest,

one tree at a time.


And when it was all over,

you blamed me for our failure.


I thought I deserved it,

this heartbreak that destroyed me.


It took me months to realize

I was worth more than you gave me credit for.


I had forgotten how to

value myself in the meantime.


Losing you gave me the chance

to find myself.
