Favorite Thing

Fri, 10/31/2014 - 23:58 -- glade

You were my favorite thing

Hearing your sleepy voice at 4 am

As you struggled to stay up with me

 

Listening to your attempts at singing lullabies

That would lure me to sleep

 

Giggling as we ran through the streets

In the cold dark night

So we could feel free

 

And then you ripped it all away from me

My happiness

You tore my life apart

 

Or so I thought

 

I forgot how to be me when I was with you

And I am so SO glad you broke my heart

 

Because now

I can laugh to myself as

I run through the crunching leaves of autumn

 

And fill my kitchen with aromas of

Sweet apple pie and double chocolate cookies

 

Escape to another life

As I immerse myself in dystopian novels

 

Stay up all night and study for exams

 

My grades were put on hold when I was with you

 

My life was put on hold when I was with you

 

But now I can celebrate

Because I am free
