I Survived

by Linda W

You were once my fantasy

but fantasies fade away

You're just a figure in the dark

my love of yesterday

I'm now caught up in reality

and though I stand alone

I see what you are really about

but I think I've always known

Now I see you clearly

surrounded by all your lies

I know that I was trapped before

Kidnapped by your discuise

My eyes can see truth now

I'm not fooled anymore

I'll no longer feel excited

when you knock upon my door

And though a part of me has died

through the worst part I survived

I lost a lover and a friend

but my broken heart I learned to mend

Now I'm finally on my way

to forget the hurt of yesterday

I cannot say I never cried

but through the worst part I survived
