Fight or Flight

Contributed by MoonlitAngel on Wednesday, 15th March 2017 @ 05:04:08 PM in AEST
Topic: Event

Scared to say goodbye
Stayed far too long
Didn`t think you`d let me go without a fight
All that I endured
Finally had enough
No more living in the shadows thrown by gaslight

All those years misused
Come to an end
Thought for sure I`d see the worst of you this time
Tell you I`m leaving
Holding my breath
Time stops
Muscles tense
Flight or flight

Sad to say goodbye
Your eyes cast down
Didn`t even get up out of your chair
Picture empty rooms
Tell me you`ll miss me
No more living in the comfort of a nightmare

All those years abused
Came to an end
Thought for sure you`d do your best to keep me there
This time I`m leaving
Counting my steps
This stops
Here and now
Flight or flight?

my friend
always a difficult trial to find yourself in
heartbreaking to find you here
blessings to you
may you find the strength to stand tall
may you find the strength to do what/'/s right for you
may you find the strength to get your smile back
love and hugs to you
