The Likes of You

Confuse me
Throw me away
Tug me back

You think my heart was just a play thing
Something there you and your friends could laugh at

I’ve seen the likes of you many times in my life

Confuse me
Throw me away
Tug me back

You weren’t happy with your home life
You needed someone to vent to
So, you turned to me

Took everything I was for granted
Broke me apart at the seams

You were wrong when you thought I couldn’t stitch myself back together

Different, stronger
I would never go back to that hell

I sometimes feel the past loom over me
I reach for my brush, for my laptop
For my music, for some sort of release

I feel my demons start to crawl out
I let them loose on my work
My art, my writing, my singing
Until they’ve had enough and slither away
Back from where they came
For a time, saying goodbye to them

Until another incident makes them come out again
But this time I’m armed
I’ll fight them until I feel like me again

A constant war within myself
Trying to shut out all the damage you did

But I won’t be a victim
I won’t fall down
One of these days I’ll gain my wings
One of these days I’ll have enough
To where no one can ever hurt me again

Today is one of those days
