I keep letting you let me down

You used to get so angry

You would throw my things and break the walls of the house we had worked so hard to build

Shoot at the blocks we worked so hard to assemble

You hid and lied

deceit was alive

Subconscious waves break on the shore that would become the rest of my life.

Carried with me a strenuous fear made of diamonds.

You lost our home and I gained a hole

I scratch and I claw but I flinch

it’s a saw,

your words cut so deep and I’m flawed

We found a new home

Smaller than before

And I let you move in

I’m still sore

But I love you

So return

Always you can return

But please don’t wreck this home

I’ve built a life

And I’m happy.
