with a smile

once young and impressionable i became quite taken with another. needless to say, nothing about this person was healthy. it was a lifetime later when i finally came to terms with this.

with a smile

tattered and torn, ripped and sewn
thrown and covered i survived your storm
woke to a new day; on my knees i prayed
sweet morning rain cleansed my pain

your demons haunt me; they chase down my dreams
nowhere to hide, i am coming apart at the seems
exposed and naked, barren and cold
remorse binds me to you like a carriage to a horse

a child, bright-eyed and enamored
i faithfully became a means to your end
eagerly, i followed where you strayed
hanging on your every word, i fell

some days, when harsh winds blow, i miss you
your words echo like a drum in my head
guilty because my life is worth living
with a smile, i have let you go
