It was you who broke me

Standard

With every break

You pushed me away

With every crack

You watched me sway

Stumbling,

I reached out to you

Crying,

I submerged into you

With every break

I swayed on my feet

With every crack

I yelled my retreat

Gathering the pieces

That fell out of me

When i looked for you

I looked for the key

Sobbing i gave you

The few pieces of me

Fix me i wailed

Only you can help me

Helpless you stared

Refusing to help

I dont remember anymore

How you felt

I never saw the lie

Waiting for you to help me

I never knew

It was you who broke me

Requiem for a Love Story

Standard

I didnt love him like juliet loved romeo

It wasnt love that couldve died

I didnt run after him like girls today I

f it wasnt meant to be, i wouldntve cried

 

He didnt lavish me with gifts

Or promises he wouldnt keep

He didnt take me for fancy dinners

Or crept in to watch me sleep

 

I didnt threaten suicide

When wed fight

I never cried

It was never right

 

Instead i drowned myself

In the very depths of his soul

I merged the broken pieces of me

With him i became whole

 

He fused himself

To the torn edges of me

He started his stories

With not an I but a “we”

 

I retraced our footsteps

Along the shores of regret

They seem to have faded

Did we finally forget?

 

Corpses of dreams

Floated to the side

I kicked them aside

I begged them to hide

 

Like diamonds from coal

They finally emerged

Dragging our broken souls

In the light we submerged

 

Took us years

We finally came through

We came out whole

We came out new
