My Key

My Key

We've known each other
for eternity it seems
Always there for one another
We were the strongest team

I remember you holding
me in your arms
together we were molding
I was blinded by your charm

Then you went, shattering the glass
I called my heart
We were young then, it happened so fast
But i guess all love stories need a start

Foolish love they called it
We both were fools in their eyes
To me it seemed the pieces just fit
Even when you over looked my cries

My heart was in control back then
Forgiving you was my weakness
A weakness you will never see again
I guess that's my uniqueness

You broke me
Manipulated me, tore me to shreds
You locked me up and threw away my key
Now only thing that keeps me grounded is these meds

Even though you're gone
Your memory still haunts me
Making me feel so alone
It seems you will never let me be

But i promise you
I am stronger than ever now
My memories are no longer black and blue
The black and blue i will never allow
​​​​​​
No, you did not beat me
You have made me so much stronger
That doesn't mean you can start saying "We"
Now go, walk along her

You won't hurt me
Not anymore, i locked you out
I have my own key
So no longer will my heart be so full of doubt.

After all, I am the keeper of my own destiny.

I applaud you on a fabulous write & the personal journey it took me on. It’s a subject I have too written about on Cosmo. You absolutely nailed it with the last paragraph & closing sentence. The ones who hurt us are no longer in control of our hearts 😀 Thank you for sharing this piece 💞

Sometimes it takes strength and courage to love ourselves enough to protect ourselves.  Good meaningful poem.

I go through phases personally. It's getting time too. Plus I hate forcing myself to write.

Same here. But most of the time i don't force myself write. I have so much packed inside of my head and heart that it just flows out. Now I cannot say whats in my head but apparently I can put it into poetry. :) It's all about what is in your heart. If you listen to your heart closely, it can reveal all that is hidden. 😊
