You promised you’d never let go; You promised a lifetime. Standing there and holding her As if I’m completely blind. He thought he could hurt me, But I am completely fine. I’ve been with a cheater, A beater, A super overachiever… Now I need some me time- Some bubble bath and chai tea time. No reason to shave time- I am fine with who I am.
The longest drive of my life was only four and a half dragging minutes around two street corners Followed by the loudest sound of an unlocking door my oozing ears have ever witnessed And the guiltiest hug my arms will ever bear. His scent still lingering on my clothes and face and those same arms, I proceed to tell you my secrets (not the fun kind you whisper to your friends) the ones I could only stand to hide under my tongue for one whole day, and purely for the sake of your innocence. I reach into your chest and rip out what's rightfully mine and I can't apologize enough as I ring out every good memory I have ever given you and replace it with a night I can't even fully remember. Naturally, you curse and leave me alone in your room as if I've kicked you out of your own home, as if you never want to see my face again unless it is twisted and bruised, as if the only thing I have ever given you was a chip in your paper-thin skull. After draining my lips of "I'm sorry"s and "I love you"s you find the decency in your heart to take hold of my hand, walk me silently to the bathroom, and politely ask me to join you for a bubble bath.
When I talk to you, when I hear you Something inside me feels a little numb Or is it my heart telling me not to be dumb Or is it the way you smile or laugh makes me feel like I'm in a cozy bubble bath. Is your love ment to be? Is your love true enough to see?
