Relationships, loves or friendships.... it still applies.... live, love, learn.

Picture Perfect

There comes a sad time in your life
Maybe once, or many times
You realise someone isn't good for you
Not who you thought they were
They eat your energy
Make you feel less of yourself
And then you know... it's time to let go

I see that I paint a portrait
Of a person, that only I perceive
It isn't who they really are
So when I feel hurt and deceived
I know that I can not blame them
For not being picture perfect

Tis true my heart's on my sleeve
And I love with every fibre of me
I lay naked before the flames
My emotions like unmoving targets
And yet sleeves are after all
Where some must wipe their noses...!

So through the heartache of loss
I can smile at myself knowing
The reason that paths are crossed
Is for me to learn and grow
And with knowledge, forgiveness, and grace
I can wish the same for another.. and heal
You see I know, I'm not perfect either
