two steps back.

two steps back.

A Story by rosalie

One step closer to the edge. 
One step closer to ending this life.
One step closer to leaving the people who pushed me to this point.
One step closer to saying goodbye.
I was going to die young.
I had a plan, I was ready to say goodbye.
Then you came.
You came into my life and fucked up my plan.
You came into my life and said I love you.
You came into my life and made me take two steps back.
You gave me a reason to stay.
But I had a plan. 
I was going to die young.
I had to follow through with my plan.
You came into my life and brought light.
Now what am I supposed to do?
How do I know you wont leave? 
My heart knows I'm safe. 
Two steps back is all I need.
Two steps back into your arms.
Two steps back to love.

Ive always loved writing but I've never had the confidence to share my work, until one day a friend told me to be an island in a world of continents. they told me to be myself and not worry about what.. more..
