I wish my heart

Knew better


I wish I didn’t

Let you hurt me


But your words

Slice at my heart

Reopening wounds

I tried to put away


I wish my heart

Knew better

Than to believe

You changed


Than to believe

You love me

For who I am


That you don’t want to

Fix me’


Like I am a

Broken doll


Made for you to


Color in

Sit on your shelf


Look pretty

For you


Dance to the

Melody of your Lies


Hypnotizing me into believing

The steps my heartbeat

Asks for are wrong


I wish my brain

Knew better

Then to tell my

Heart to hush


I wish my soul

Felt Better

Didn’t forget




I’m speaking

To the mirror


Their voices

From my lips.
