I payed

A Poem by Courtney


I thought I was ok
I thought I could do it alone
That I didn't need help
But I could feel the glacier cold ice on my heart
Burning me
Killing me
I denied his hand
Turned him down
Doubted him
Rejected his love
And payed for it
We turned only when we need something
When we need help
But we're never there to love him
And I payed
I payed,
I payed
I payed
Until one day
I opened by eyes
And realized I didn't have to pay
Because he already did
