Difficulty with letting go of past hurt.

I feel I have forgiven you

Thought I was healing over time

The pain I thought subsided

 No longer did I fight it

At times I saw you differently

At times I felt it heartedly

And while I smiled at you each day

I hoped that I’d moved on

But I don’t know how to be free

And unwillingly you hurt me

So all the scars appearing mended

Tear open and I fall apart

I’m overcome with heartache

Ashamed of every tear

I long to find the strength inside me

I’d love to swallow down my fear

But I choke on every beautiful memory

And I sting at every treacherous thought

So many times I have wanted to hate you

And every time I know I cannot

Maybe it’s not my place to forgive

You’re your own, I’m just a part of it

I want to love the you, you, are

But the you, you’ve been, won’t let me forget
