First it was my sight, so that I was unable to look at anyone else
I was blinded until eyesight wasn’t needed anymore
Then it was my smile; one look at you and I’d melt
Reserved only for the best, I began to smile less and less
Then it was my hand that reached for you in the dark
Heightened senses couldn’t even predict that you’d leave me standing there to starve.
My ears wouldn’t hear of the doubters and the naysayers
Just to listen to your words peeled back the layers of betrayal
My legs moved to the beat of your step
And my heart clung to your elaborate spun webs
My brain rationalized your lies that crept into the back of my head
You took and you took until there was nothing left
And I’ve got nothing left to give
You’ve taken it all away
What made you think that you were justified?
Picking me apart to secure your own happiness
What made you think I could survive, deprived of the basic things essential to life?
Was it because with every bit of me you took I pushed through to act strong?
Well you were wrong.
There are some pieces that will never fit the way they were once they are broken.
