How does it feel
To walk in
And see a smile on my face?
A smile that has nothing to do with you
A smile that has nothing to do with another,
No, this smile
That shines so brightly,
Comes from deep within
A place you have never
And will never reach.
Does it pain your ego
To know that I am still standing
After you walked away?
That’s right, I said your ego,
Pick your lip up off the floor
You have no right to look so hurt
Because your heart had nothing
To do with us.
That beating vessel remains encased
Belonging to another
When your ego chose me
As the distraction.
I let you in
Which was my first mistake
But I won’t bury myself for love anymore,
No, I’m going to put my heart first.
I’m going to jump into the world
I’m going to live for myself
I’ve given too much for someone else’s happiness
But this is my time to be free.
One day love will come for me
That love will find someone without regret,
Someone who lived a full life
And someone who is ready to share the rest of it…
