Suddenly I See...

By Crimson Shade

Suddenly I see what lies beneath your eyes,
Was it my compromise that bred your lies?

Suddenly I see that you take and never give,
Was that the way I’m supposed to live?

Suddenly I see that I have been abused,
Was it my innocence that you used?

Suddenly you see that I’ve been crying,
It was because I was trying.

Suddenly I see that you were the pain inside of me,
That is why I’m leaving you for me.

    I really liked this, I felt a bit of my own life wrapped up within it's few lines. The ending being one of such strength, to be able to walk away from something. This was incredible!
