He Made You Believe

When his lips touched yours 

All the wailing cries from every heartbreak 

Were sucked out of your body 

Like a cleansing of your soul

.

.

When your fingers touched, 

Every tear you cried became the fuel for a better tomorrow 

.

.

When you handed him you heart, he buffed out all the imperfections 

Left by the men that couldn’t handle you 

.

.

And he gave it back nearly perfect 

.

.

He made you believe that you were his forever 

He made you believe that he was yours too 

.

.

The happiness in your smile makes me believe 

That you thought he would never leave you 

.

.

He spoke to you of all the ways 

And all the ways 

And all the ways 

.

.

He spoke to you of the future 

And all the days 

And the way he would stay. 

.

.

He held your hand and you thought

“This warmth could survive me through a winter storm”

.

.

You wouldn’t imagine life without him anymore 

.

.

Yes, he made you believe 

.

.

That it was you and him forever 

.

.

You couldn’t have known that it would be your last December 

.

.

When he walked away so suddenly, your heart was ripped entirely from your chest

He promised you so much more

He handed you so much less

.

.

He made you believe you were his forever

He made you believe he was yours too

.

.

Then you were stuck in the sidelines as he rode away with her to get away from you

.

.

As he rode into the sunset with his new love between his arms

You were deserted, deflated, embarrassed, appalled

Because the one you loved so quickly

Never really loved you at all
