I tried to talk to you, but the anger and hurt prevents me,
I have fought back tears for so long,
I can’t accept the person you have become.
Once a beautiful woman full of life,
And now you have been reduced to someone’s shadow.
You gave up on me when I was fifteen,
Imagine a mother choosing a man over her first born.
You let me convince myself that maybe I had done something wrong.
Carrying around the guilt like a scarlet letter.
Memories flooded my head every time I let someone get close,
My heart stood at attention, fully guarded by the scars of the past.
Broken promises waved in the distance
As I realized I was trapped in my own prison of emotions.
Nothing and no one is safe from the hold you have on me,
My life is a target of your destruction.
I have a constant battle to release myself from you,
And I refuse to be your shadow.
