The promise
Betraying one
The one is myself
The happiness
The joy
The tears one has cried
The hurt and the pain
All up inside
I took all of what I loved
The love I found
Praying that somehow, some way
This can be healed
Trusting in God to help me
Help me to find what lies beneath
Retreating into my shell
I don't want to go there again
The love I found that drew me out
I can't lose it now
I do not know the words
These words just touch barely the surface
Of what I feel and what I have to say
I want so badly to give what is locked up inside
Hidden away in the back of the mind
Tucked away where one can't find
Chaotic, abstract
These things I feel and see
Only I understand, sense, and perceive
These wonderful things tied up in me
I can barely explain
One was so close, but now far away
Second guessing all of my dreams
Everything that I love
EVerything that I still hold true
I stomped on them ever so hard
Hurting
Pain
No one grasps this pain I feel
The regret
The dream
The hope


I am free to let go
No judgemnet my way
All the pain it flew away
Far away
Things have settled
Heart calmed
No longer there to hurt me
Not me hurting myself
As I once had thought
Lies caused confusion
Self protection locked me up
Not my imagination
Intuition, the vibes
Caused pain from the other
Now
Mind clear
Heart at peace
Comfortable
Free

This was so sad at first but I really like the the very last line "Free" Freedom means alot of things including the freedom to love

A lot of heart-felt emotion in this one...and with a happy ending. Good one.
