Love Taps


When the darkness starts to take over
I think of
You

They tell me i’m
Better off now
How can you love someone who hit you?
And I used to wonder the same thing
But I’d tell myself that
they were
Love taps

Sometimes I think i'm
wilting.
Like my reflection
Is all that's left of me
You’ve left me a shell
Of someone
I used to be

I was scared that someday
You would break me
But as I lay here alone
I am only breaking
Myself

I can’t be
happy
Without you
It’s almost as if
The bruises you painted on me
Gave me the ability to
Breathe

I’m getting better
I’m slowly realizing what
Love
Truly is

And I now know
You never showed me it.
