You won’t rescue me
I was so beyond through with you
Please don’t try to reclaim me
A stone thrown
In the path of love
I’m still stronger than ever
But I’ve had enough
What is true love versus honest love?
An angel wing enfolds me
Holds the pain together
Transforms it to faded
At least
Stay out of my memory
You never had a claim on me
I wasted too much precious in your company
Please let me return
I’m returning to the heart that used to be
Returning the yearning through a new view
In this moment I breathe with you
But you won’t see—
In the next I’m free…
