Craved and I learned a lesson
Hidden meaning between the lies
That were supposed to be apparent
But were not to me.

Cries never heard in darkness
They fall like rain
As I do
Nobody warned me about that.

Hidden dangers under covers
Between breaths that were not his
I was warned against all of this
But I didn’t hear it.

Formed alliances with darkness
That assured me, as they were packing
They would never leave
I believed that.

Promised I wouldn’t return
Swore off for life the enchantment
He had over me
I didn’t do that.

Finally walked away
When I realized
It was never the truth
I believed that it was.

When you think love is a fire
Or an ember
It will burn you.
I didn’t remember that.
