Love is a Battlefield

A story of a past love, and trying to learn to trust again. The insecurities of the past are, sometimes, very hard to over come.

Love is a Battlefield

Sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
Had I
Never seen the real you
If I had kept those rose coloured
Glasses
On my eyes
Would this have still been ok?
Would I have been happy?
Would this have always been my way of life?
You know
I just can't go there sometimes
The pain of your betrayal
Lingers through every door
It wanders with me
Down every path I take
It talks to me
With every mistake I make
It tells me
I'm not good enough
It tells me
Everyone is the same
They're all going to hurt me
They are all going
To be just like you.
But I do my best
To ignore its pleas
It half assed attempts
To threaten the life
I am trying to lead.
I'm learning
How to break out of this shell
Youve trapped me in
I'm learning to trust my own heart
To recognise the signs
That I once ignored with you
I'm learning to listen to my heart
To let it tell me
When it no longer beats for you
To pack up and go
To believe in the path
I am trying to follow
To believe in the gods
I swore allegiance to
Back in the days
Of carelessness
And tree forts.
I know it's not easy
And some days
That voice will win one of these battles
And I will fall
And wonder if I've made the right decision
And wonder what I could have done
Where I went wrong.
But I can never let your voice
Win this war.
To let it win,
Would mean to
Accept the mistakes you've made
At my expense
To allow this hurt to swallow me up
And I
Cannot allow this fight
To end in vain.
I will always
Care about you,
But that does not mean
That I will ever
Ever again
Trust you
With my heart.
