You deserve much better,
make no mistake.
Quiet your tongue
so his world does not shake

He thinks he rules the world,
pathetic fool,
hides behind you,
while pretending to rule

A love forced to abide,
emotional hinge.
Insecure boy,
actions make you cringe

Longed for a prince charming,
received a toad,
untie your hands,
embrace the open road

You sure deserve better,
open your eyes,
forbidden fruit,
has glued you to his side

One day you will wake up,
and finally see,
love you once gave,
served to turn your own key

You deserve so much more,
feel love within,
embrace your worth
experience more wins.

Allow your reflection
to expose your soul,
drive intentions,
regain your own control

The one meant to love me,
had hate for me too.
Swaying what I see,

controlling my views.

Have you ever heard words,
that felt like a punch?

The energy sprayed,
all covered with blades,

cutting through my heart,
splitting me apart,
shooting like a gun,
leaves me feeling stunned.

Bruise into my mind,

biting deep inside,
chewing at my pride
actions undefined,
a fingerless touch
delivers the punch.

Then hold me so sweet,
offer many treats,
sweep me off my feet,
I flow like the breeze

Have you ever heard words
meant to feel like love?

The words I now hear,
erase all my fears.

all sent from above,
fly in like a dove,
they flutter inside,
bring in butterflies.

They give me a hug,
that fits like a glove,
then sing in my ears,
my eyes fill with tears,
my hopes start to fly,
reaching past the sky.

I land on both feet,
words fall on their knees,
seeking no amends,
knowing this now ends

The knots all untie,
I say my good byes
