I Picked Up The Pieces


Who do ya think you are?
You blow me to pieces,
and tear me in two,
only to come back
and throw away my pieces.

Love was a chain,
kept me as its prisoner.

Your lips left a stain,
Your breath a sweet reminder
of yesterday’s pain.

You came to me on a dreary day,
only to leave me
as a smudge on the floor.

Love left me with cloud’s above my head,
you left me with rain soaked dread. 

Love never stayed,
You never cared to.

Now I am learning how to love myself,
soon I will hang up my rain coat
and start the fire again.
