are you happy now?
everything i did for you
every eye i turned for you
every love letter i wrote for you
every time i twisted my feelings to please you
little by little, i gave you pieces of myself
in fact, i tore the pieces out and begged you to take them
"please! i love you! don't do this!"
well, you didn't
you taught me a composed lie of love
you drew me in with your charm
your dazzling green eyes
and a dozen warning signs
"no. he wouldn't do this, he loves me!"
love doesn't come laced with second guesses
love doesn't come with what ifs and maybes
love doesn't come with a dying effort to ask about my day
"hello? are you there? do you even still care? where are you? where is your effort?
please. together we can fix this."
tell me why i fixed your mistakes
i made this okay for just another day
because if it all goes away
what's left to say?
you're tangled in my veins, my heart, my brain
you're novocaine and my pain
you're not quite sure of anything and i guess you went
and switched lanes
"is it true? what you did? how could you? you said you loved me."
that was the last day
there is no way you could ever make me stay
you took away my faith
love is just another word to say
you threw my trust into a fire and watched it burn
little do you know, i am a phoenix
through the embers i will rise
i shall stand and defend my feathers
untainted by your fabrication of "love"
i will rise because i love to love
i no longer find self worth in the reflection of hatred
i no longer beg for love from a fable
i no longer search for love in you
because i have found it
