You were constantly telling me I was sunshine and roses when I am obviously orchids and moonlight. The way you held me, caressed my body, said my name… They were pleasant enough but never filled the void in my soul. You spoon fed me lies and wrapped me in a warm blanket enveloped with deception. You cared for me up to your standards but never asked me mine. Your words enraptured my thoughts and buried doubt into my brain. You said you couldn’t live without me . You told me you loved me. That I was perfect for you. We moved boxes and made a home. Our possessions and limbs intertwined like lovers in the night. We were blended. But like water and oil we drifted, we separated. You wanted me to change… Not something as simple as to stop smacking my lips as I ate or to watch my intake of wine. You wanted me to change core beliefs. Wanted me to believe in a man in the sky who lets children starve, women get abused, and men to die. Meanwhile my taro cards and crystals are charging in the moonlight as star dust dances upon my skin. You were constantly telling me I was sunshine and roses when I am orchids and moonlight. I am the universe wrapped into a humans body. I am love. I am acceptance. I am all encompassing kindness. You took it for granted and want it back. I know who I am while you are searching for yourself. You are wanting others to change to better your life. When you should be accepting people you turn them away. You took a piece of my heart… for it was yours. But you just took a portion. Not the whole.
