Beginning Again Poem by Elizabeth Grace

Beginning Again

This is my moment.

This is where you end
and I take to the sky.
Yeah, it's true that I loved you
but I'm saying goodbye.
I am rising from the ashes
of the life you left behind,
I am building from the rubble
of the tower of us - crushed
under the weight of the world.
Our foundation was always cracked.
Perfection can't be attained
out of broken dreams and giving up.
I had given up when I met you
and you made me feel
like it was all right
to fade into nothing.
I carried you in my skin,
I carved you into my soul,
your voice became the voice in my head.
I lived for you.
You used me.
I see it now. I see the lies
and I see the reality -
I see that you are sick.
You once said that
you wished
I would be motivated enough
to get better,
but you said it as you threw your life away.
Hypocrisy was the game you played
and I don't think you realize
that I will never be there again.
My dreams are real
turning into reality
and I will never let you
drag me down to darkness,
drag me down to death.
Never again.

It is borderline impossible to come back from the crushing end to a relationship. I love this poem, so raw, so emotional.
