I loved a person once,
Who showed me my own might,
I didn't know the strength I had,
Until they came into my sight.
They held me up when I was weak,
And made me whole again,
A precious love I thought I found,
That would never meet an end.
We walked the path of love and light,
Together we felt strong,
But as time went on,
It slowly went all wrong.
The love we shared turned toxic,
Our bond no longer pure,
Our troubles weighed us down,
We could not find a cure.
Our relationship broke us both,
It took its final stand,
The pain it caused, once so unknown,
Had now gotten out of hand.
But in that love, I found my strength,
That I could overcome any plight,
I learned that growth comes from within,
And that strength keeps me upright.
So I moved on from the toxic love,
And found peace in myself,
A strength that will never leave me,
A feeling I'll always be able to delve.
I'm not sure I moved on but I'm sure taking it one day at a time
