You Lied

Too many times to count. 

I believed each and every line you said to me.

I drank them all up. 

You were water 

And I was parched. 

Your lies showered me 

Covered me in a blanket

And tucked me into bed

My gut tugging at me to wake up

But I was warm 

It wasn’t until you cut me with words. 

Iced me

Leaving me shivering for years

Until I found a warm fire inside of me 

I warmed my hands by the fire 

And slowly, I started to feel like myself again.
