Trusting was a mistake.
I repeatedly committed.
But with you things changed.
You compelled me to believe it wasn’t.
You carefully peeled my attire
Each layer one by one.
To remove all the shells I’d worn
Leaving me stark naked and exposed.
You held me close
Grasping and clasping me ever so tight.
And whispered in my ear with utmost care,
My baby girl, you’ll always be mine.
It was an unwritten contract
We willingly agreed to sign
Misleading me into believing in you,
A shell just created for you and I.
Happiness never lasts.
The truth never remains true.
Deception became a strategy you mastered
That I’d fallen prey to.
That void is back.
I’m never to be whole again you see
Do I resign myself to think
we were never meant to be?
And once more I recede into my shell
Where happiness is synonymous to disappointment.
Where emptiness is blinding.
Where hope is an eternal pointless moment.
