When I heard you say those words, I thought they were magic. I felt in my heart that the words meant everything to you. Little did you realize that those are the words I had been longing to hear for my entire life. Abandoned by so many people, I had finally found hope. Hope in you. In your arms.
I should have known right from the start it was all a lie. You were never the type to say those three words and mean them. If you did not mean them, why did you even try to say them? I will never understand what went on in your mind. I do not even understand what I was thinking.
The memory of that morning will haunt me no more. I am letting go. Letting go of the darkness you set in my heart. I will no longer let your image haunt my dreams. The memory of your voice will no longer fill my ears when only silence surrounds me. I will dwell on your lies no more. I have found my own power, a brand new strength.
I finally found myself. And I will never let myself fall for another lie. My eyes are open, and they see light.
