Finally I See
February 17, 2012
You say I am hurt too easily.
Lies though, they do cause pain.
Why do I again return?
Am I asking for more, more of the same?
I fell for you as a woman-child and you know me well.
We live a crazy, vicious cycle of apologies and blame.
I need to leave for more than just a spell.
Your love it brings pain.
Mine does the same to you.
We are late in making this change.
Could I be wrong?
I used to bleed for you to see.
I exposed every tear in my heart.
Perhaps I allowed you too much access
to my many faults.
Now the wounds have healed, have hardened much of me.
I wanted to let you touch my skin, to feel your honesty.
Honesty exists no longer, my blind heart finally sees.
