when you broke
my heart
I thought you
walked away with
the air I breathe
and left my lungs
and motionless.
I thought you
drained my blood
and left my shattered
heart unable to
contract and release
ever again.
I was wrong,
I will breathe on
I will will my heart
to beat on.
I will live on.
I will not let you kill me.
I am in charge of me
I can save me.
When you broke my heart
I thought you took my life
with you when
you left.
But no.
I can fight on


for Him

and I’d want nothing more
than to come running to you
come crying to you
but since I’ve done some
goodbye-ing with you
I can’t come crawling to you
even though I can’t stop
thinking of you
my heart won’t stop aching
for you
my heart is still
beating for you
but I can’t go to you
because I’m not
your problem
you closed that door.
so I’ll start crying for you…
start dying for you…
goodbye-ing for you
