Out of Hell

I have given my heart, only to a few
I have left pieces behind but not to you
Loved drugs, pills, booze--never truly me
You surely helped me see
When tragedy struck you couldn't cope
I was the only one filled with hope
Thinking we could come out strong
Trying again for a miracle
You quickly proved me wrong
Time passed, I gave you another chance
Little did I know
Near future, my death
Would be close in your grasp
Fake smiles, laughter--me never telling a soul
Not having the courage I dug myself a hole
Always thinking it would get better because of the love I had
That Super Bowl Sunday was the end
Never knowing it would be so bad
Cops called, you in jail
Me with cuts, bruises, blood--I told myself no more
And I got myself out of hell
Not long after--caring, respect, love
In a man and preemie son are what I found
Now in a different state
I know you will never come back around
