Goodbye 3

byWillow Rain©

I want to go back
to a time when I trusted you
and thought you would never harm me.
Your heart and
arms were false and fragile shelter.
I was unknowing and naive in my love.

I want to be empty
of hard thoughts.
Take back these things you’ve done.
Erase the words
you’ve written and said
in anger
and rage against me.
Return what you have stolen,
and broken.
Make right your vandalism
of my spirit.

Give me back
some little belief in you.
Be the man
I thought you were
for one breath more
so I can pause in this sorrow
and find room to forgive.
