Broken

Tags: love, broken, loss
Sometimes you have to be broken to learn to be whole.
She had truly loved him or at least she thought she had

When the dreams of their future ended, her heart was so sad

 As the tears rolled down her cheeks she grieved the loss

She was someone real and not an item to use and then toss

 She did this to herself over and over when it came to affairs of the heart

Now she felt that she was broken and the pieces were falling apart

 What was the purpose of loving if it was only to end?

That is when she saw the light and her heart began to mend

 Love was not an object or something to be possessed

It was a feeling to find for which your heart is blessed

She was loving out of need and not out of passion or desire

His actions hurt so bad but it was her heart that was the liar

 Their love was not real and it was not the fairy tale she had wanted

She was loving for the wrong reasons and now she was haunted

 This time she was broken so badly she could only sit and cry

But now she knew the reasons she had erred, she finally knew why

She had to first love herself before she could give her heart away

Love was a feeling that she wanted, but she wanted it to stay

 If you loved for the wrong reasons and you were not honest in life

You gave them the ability to cut you and you handed them the knife

He was not the villain but he was no knight in shining armor either

But when you chose love for the wrong reasons, you end up with neither

This time in her life she was going to learn to love herself first

She had decided to let herself find love without being cursed

Maybe the only way we can be whole is to first be broken

And through the pain she felt herself finally be woken

Life and love are gifts so precious and rare

They should be given with the utmost of care

Her heart was healing and she now knew she was worth it

Somewhere out there was a heart that together was the perfect fit

Right now she would learn to enjoy her beautiful life

No one can hurt her again for now she held the knife

She knew that by loving herself and being in control

She could give her heart away, not broken but whole
