A little something I wrote today...

Ready to love again

You had no idea
Just how precious it was
What you held in your hands
But you threw it all away
Only learning now what it was you had
You never believed
You’d have it so good again
But loving you was painful
You brought me to my knees
Your love of me
Just meant I had to leave
How come those 3 little words
Were so easy to fall from your lips,
When I believed that showing you
was so much better instead?

You had no idea
Just how precious it was
What you held in your hands
But you threw it all away
Only learning now what it was you had
You made me feel so empty inside
You left me feeling cold
Your love was very public
You liked to own me, so I was off bounds
But what did you do to ever keep me,
To make me feel safe and sound?
You stopped caring for me
And in turn ‘true’ love left too
You filled your life with other passions
One’s more important than your bride
So what was I to do,
But quietly die inside?

You had no idea
Just how precious it was
What you held in your hands
But you threw it all away
Only learning now what it was you had
You took me for granted,
Never believing that I might leave
You thought I’d stay forever
Be contented with my lot
But you’d stripped me down naked
naked to my bones
You took nearly everything I had
And even then, it still wasn’t enough.

You had no idea
Just how precious it was
What you held in your hands
But you threw it all away
Only learning now what it was you had
I once was your queen,
And once you treated me as such
But then suddenly you stopped
And replaced me with other things to love
How was I to compete with that?
There was nothing left that I had
You made me feel unlovable
When you didn’t see me, anymore
You left me with a hollow heart
You emptied out my soul

You had no idea
Just how precious it was
What you held in your hands
But you threw it all away
Only learning now what it was you had
But I will be a queen again
This I feel for sure
And even through my doubting hours
I know I will love again
And next time I will love more
