On My Own…

Nothing can replace the security I felt when you were here

The illusion that was telling me everything was okay when it wasn’t

I created this false sense of happiness within

When all I really was doing was ruining all that I ever wanted

Then you left and that blanket was gone

Like a child realizing Santa isn’t real

Seeing it as a preservation of innocence and not complacent lies

You wanted so bad to save me

But now I’m on my own…
