To mend this broken heart I have
What do I do next?
I take a step forward
But always see myself in flashbacks of the love I could've had
One foot in front of the other
Just to stop in my tracks of healing waiting for you to come hold my hand
Walk with me please
What do I do next?
This can't be all that there is
Feeling empty because I poured every inch of myself into someone for years
Drowning in the depths of what I thought was love
"It's okay to be hurt but you have to move on"
Tell me... how do I move on from someone who has moved into my heart?
I tried putting up an eviction notice but it didn't seem to work
Why are you still here?
All the tears I've shed I swear I could fill an ocean
You're like my own personal form of poison that I need to get away from
It's time for me to pack my bags and leave
No matter how much I believe this may still work
I've grieved for way too long
I know I need to be strong
But for some reason I have this fear of being alone
I used to do so well on my own
I used to love myself
Not expecting it from anyone else
But you... you came into my life and that's all I knew
To mend this broken heart...
I know what I have to do next
Letting go of you... of us will be hard
Yet, it will be the best decision my heart has made when it came to you... to us
This broken heart will soon be whole again
Step by step and piece by piece
I will be able to feel myself regain the confidence that I had before
I will once again become the main character of my own story, in protection of my heart
Yes, I may need to restart but in that will come out beautiful pieces of art
I will be happy
I will be content in my own being
Not worried about what others think of me
Everything will happen on my own pace as long as I stay true to what I have to say
And in this story I've written of how to mend this broken heart I was given
This experience has showed me the ugly beauty of putting the pieces back together
For future endeavors
