I fear that I’ve been blinded by your love
For once you weren’t there things became tough
I assumed my happiness was in your presence
So I made my perfume from your essence
Sprayed it everywhere so I’d feel you
It was dominant while your emotions weren’t true
All the lies you fed me left me in terror
False hope you gave me but I deserve better
Fortunately, I have my family and friends
Ones I can rely on while my wounds mend
They have always been there for me
And now the best version of myself I thrive to be
My experience with them taught me so many lessons
Some I wouldn’t have learned by myself I reckon
Many people who are in my life will eventually depart
But only true friends will leave a footprint in my heart.

They haven’t smiled properly since then
I long to look into your dark eyes again
To see what you hid in your soul from words
To take me with them on a journey to your world
They seem to remind me that you’re human too
That feeling unproductive isn’t something new
They vent saying you’re going through a hard situation
Where loneliness is causing a great deal in your devastation
It’s challenging you to try and live without it
To bring over new friends who truly love you and admit
It’s creating in your mind the illusion that no one wants you
And being stoical would be the only way through
So I ask you when it speaks in your head, radiating a sound
Telling you to disappear, say “ No I want to be found.”

You live in your own world away from reality
Dream of finding yourself a brand new identity
With that you put on a gown alongside a mask
Started attending ***** and fulfilling your task
You liked the idea of being mysterious
For feeling exposed to you seemed hideous
You met people with good and bad intentions
Didn’t care much for you just wanted their attention
You made some friends and that’s what seemed to matter
You were left with only one person to flatter
He was a long shot yet you decided to gamble
Apparently, he played a card that made you tremble
Your mask, acts, and games away he shoved
Brought you back to reality where he was the only person you loved

So much memories we have that it's nearly impossible to forget
You left but didn't tell my heart to move on yet
A picture of a life where you and I were present I shot
Now a big hole in it I spot
Time passed by and I couldn't wait any longer
I knew if I saw you one more time I'd get stronger
I went searching for you relying on the wind and its directions
but I ended up in the ocean without your protection
I looked at the sky and remembered you look at the same one too
I looked at my hand and remembered the space between my fingers were meant for you
As I was drowning, running out of breath and falling apart
I realized that I don't have to search for you as you are present in my heart.

It was all yours to take
Free to either own or break
Thought it fell in the right hands
Against you no one stood a chance
You asked for something to hold dear
Once given it felt devastation and fear
What it went through can not be told
For if it happens it would die in the cold
After life would have stabbed it in the back
Left for no one against it a track
Wind would have grabbed it by the throat
Threw it somewhere far and remote
It was yours and you buried it deep
Neglected it until it left with a sense of defeat
Is this what happens when I entrust you with my heart?
I should have known better from the start
It began with a lovely “ You and Me”
But in the end, it was all a “ catastrophe”

I was cold, alone and soaked in the rain
Couldn’t handle my scars and all that pain
You tagged along and taught me important lessons
Ones ill never forget and use as weapons
To go through life and its hardships prepared
A heart, once broken , you managed to repair
'The way I see it ", you said, "life was tough for you
But I’m sure you’ll manage getting through
Be the love you wished to have but never received
Look back at the past and see all what you’ve achieved
You’ve come so far , don’t lose yourself now
I believe in you and I certainly won’t allow
After winter , where everything seems lifeless and hollow
Spring follows and removes everyones sorrow
You’ve always been strong and you’ll stay that way
Remember resilience is just one season away!"
