Everything eventually connects

Hating you wasn’t an option

Before you gave it to me.

Loving you wasn’t an option

Before you gave it to me.

Hating myself wasn’t an option

Before you gave it to me.


Why did you do that?

Mend me,

Only to break me.


Why wipe my tears when you caused me many in the end?

Why make me eat when you had to leave me starving in the end?

Why call me beautiful when you made me feel ugly in the end?


Taught me how toxic living could be,

Taught me how hatred blooms inside me,

Taught me to love myself after you left.


Months passed and I found myself,

Sitting near the lake again with coffee in my hand.

Didn't forget a thing you did to me,

Just learned how to live when you are not near me.


I guess that’s how it goes,

You give the pain,

I take it away.

You make me hate myself,

I end up loving myself.

You made me cry,

Now those eyes shine.


I guess

In the very end;

Everything eventually connects.
