I was yours to adore

you were mine to regret

I thought I loved you once

now I try to forget

forget the time we were

forget the time you took

because you stole my heart 

without a second look

a year ago you stole it

and locked it up so tight

although I didn't see it

you were stealing all my light

and through all this time 

I've got it back again

I wont let anyone steal it

not even my best friend

loving you---

was my biggest mistake

but it taught me so much;

my heart was too easy to take

so I put up my defenses

-built a wall around my mind-

blocking out the world

saving my precious time

I rebuilt my confidence

I built myself back up

I even repaired my heart

after it was shattered, torn, and cut

it's like I an reborn

although I never died

the pain will always come back

but I'll never admit I cried

yes in a way you helped me

but you also destroyed my heart

it's filled with paranoia and mistrust

it's one piece from falling apart

in many ways you broke me

physically and inside

hiding the pain is easy

it's the scars that are hard to hide

not many people know

the things you did to me 

cause I'm not the person

that I pretend to be...
