In the depths of my heart, love once did reside,
A love so profound, no boundary could hide.
I forgave, I believed, in the name of our start,
But shadows grew long, tearing my heart apart.
I loved you, I trusted, with a love pure and deep,
But you took my love, and my trust, in your sweep.
You abused, you betrayed, and in darkness, you thrived,
Each hurt and each scar, in my soul, it survived.
Innocence surrendered, to your cruelty's reign,
I bore the abuse, endured all the pain.
Mocked and manipulated, a prisoner of despair,
You took my soul's light, replaced it with cold, lifeless air.
You left me battered, in my darkest of times,
Feeding on my suffering, weaving your wicked rhymes.
I forgave, I forgave, countless times I forgave,
But your cruelty, it continued, my spirit to enslave.
You painted a facade, for the world to behold,
A loving presence, caring, with a heart of gold.
They believed in your act, thought you the best,
While I carried your torment, in silent distress.
Now love has withered, like a flower left to die,
In the barren wasteland, where our love used to lie.
I stand strong, though you tried to break me apart,
For within this brokenness, I find my own heart.
I'll heal, I'll rebuild, find the strength to reclaim,
The life that you shattered, in pursuit of your game.
No longer your victim, I rise from the dust,
In my newfound freedom, in myself, I'll trust.
With wounds that may linger, scars that may stay,
I'll emerge from this darkness, find my own way.
No longer your prisoner, in this story's end,
I'll rediscover myself, my spirit, my friend.
