Wounded Thinking


I thought I knew you
Your spirit, your soul
I became accustomed to your flaws
And so...
I lingered on

I believed in you
My blinded eyes led me
To an empty space
A space, you call your soul

My own mind and heart betrayed me
Just like you betrayed me
Your deceitful affection misled me

I believed in your illusion
But now my dear...
I've come to the conclusion
This time...
I know who you are
You are one...
I no longer desire

And yet...
I feel sad, empty
Something is gone.
Something...I never really had

    Liked it. I wish I could move past love. I know of no one in my life that I have loved that I no longer desire. (Report) Reply
