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.
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.
