Sometimes I let my values become my downfall.
I feel like I forego the end goal to maintain my righteous ways,
I get so stubborn, I’m stuck inside a maze.
Not this time.
Even though I want so much to be us two,
I will choose my virtue over you.
When it comes to you and I
It’s either all or bye-bye.
In my mind I play tricks,
I try to reconcile my thoughts,
I try to find a way back to you,
I try to cope.
I tell myself:
I will keep my virtue but
Let my ego go.
I tell you:
Let’s start over,
A new flow.
Then my mind backs down
To the sound of
My heart breaking in my chest,
I remember the tormenting pain
And I can’t bare more distress.
“A coward dies a thousand deaths”
And I don’t feel like a heroine.
Your silence is your message,
Your cruelty ripped me from within.
