Shards of Love


You used to like the taste of my fear
Beat me down then kiss my tears
You still make me cower in fear

You used to stay up late at night
Even talking till the break of light
You knew how to make it feel alright

You used to bruise my skin with ease
Grab my hair, bring me to my knees
Your love is riddled with disease

You used to keep me close to you
Swearing our love was pure and true
There's nothing you wouldn't do

You used to threaten me with violence
Then recoil with tears or silence
But you always asserted your presence

You used to be everything to me
With you was all I wanted to be
But now I'm gone and we are free

So why am I so tortured inside?
Why does it feel like a part of me died?
I can't move on, no matter how hard I try
