“You were too good to be true.
And I knew it.”
You were too good to be true. And I knew it. But oh, how much I wanted to give in. To let my body lead the way. To let my heart drown in you and quiet my brain. As if that might take away some of the lingering warning bells. The ones that told me you’d only leave broken pieces in your wake. So I would watch, as you walked away, with your eyes already set on the next target. Because you took what you wanted without any regards for what you were doing.
Even though you tried, it took everything I had to resist. I told myself I wouldn’t succumb to your wiles. Yet somewhere along the way, I forgot all the reasons why I shouldn’t give in. At last, when I watched you leave, I hid all the pain from my shattered heart. And I refused to let it bring me to my knees.
