You Let Me Go

Never Again

you admired and loved me like i was a rose

until my petals withered away 

i lost my colour and became dark 

to you i was now damaged and unlovable 

you threw me away like waste 

you left me in the dirt before you realised 

roses grow back more beautiful 

than before, although this time i 

grew back, i grew thorns 

now you'll never think about picking me 

up and throwing me away again


-you underestimated me 


I promise you’ll never hurt me again. 

I have my guard up, my thorns will hurt you before you even have a chance of thinking about hurting me
