Every step I took away from you
Was a step I took towards myself
I found that the only distance I had
Was the distance between me and my heart
I discovered a piece of myself
While searching for my love in you
Realizing your hands have brought
The missing touch inside my truth
If the moon and the stars
Disappeared for a night
I’d find peace in the sun
That shines bright in your eyes
Do you see the beauty in me?
A piece of me I have lost
Even if it’s me you see
In the end, what will it cost?
Tangled in vines you pull apart
You seem to be just fine
How long until I pierce your heart?
With the thorns I grew inside
You planted a seed of uncertainty
Which then sprung into this thought
That one day I might walk away
After finding a love you were not
You watered this concept for far too long
It grew to consume your mind
And while you nurtured this false idea
You then foolishly left me behind
I tried to stop you from losing it all
I planted a different seed
Which then grew into why I left you
For the love I could give back to me
What do you do
When a love so strong
Starts to take on a form of its own?
Do you let it run free
Like the wind through the trees
Or anchor it down to a home?
