Life After Love

It is such a beautiful moment

When the clouds begin to clear

And the sun shines brightly down the path to tomorrow

Just think

A week ago, you were wallowing in disappointment 
Cripled by another broken heart

A pain so deep 

You thought you’d never recover

But much to your surprise

You did

Your life is not over

One’s ego just a little bruised

For the love for yourself is much greater now than ever before

There is no need to feel foolish

For we all put too much faith in others sometimes

You simply loved with your soul

And that is nothing to be ashamed of

It is childish for one to play games with another’s heart

And in the end they are the fool

For the broken hearted grow stronger

While they remain the same

Alone 

Bruised

If you knew the pain I was feeling, would it matter

If you knew that love was fading, would you pick up the phone

I trusted you and those words that slipped off your tongue

And you…you tossed me aside

It could have been different, you and I

But you…you wouldn’t even try

It could have been easy, amazing and even forever

But I guess we’ll never know

For I love myself much more than you

And I refuse to live in a constant state of disappointment

I am worthy of more, much more than this

Maybe you were right

Maybe I do deserve better

I can not change the way I feel

For I fear that I will always love you

Yet in this moment, I know

The only path is moving forward

Beyond this

Beyond you

And some day, I hope

I can look at you without this pain in the pit of my stomach

Absent of desire

And free

Free from your love and the memories of you
