every sign that led me to you was a fabrication
i've retraced my steps
and walked past them all.
a lie, each and every last one.
i must've been lost
among the clouds of admiration
CAUTION: emotional torment ahead
YIELD to oncoming heartbreak for self love
STOP assigning feelings to the wrong people
or maybe you cast a spell on me
it allowed me to perceive you
while not allowing me
to overlook your positives
and see the horror
that lay behind your beckoning eyes.
you did what I could not
to believe you were good enough
you don't deserve me,
but i sure as hell
