Insecure and Jealous you made me... Lies you feed me daily... I was so gone off you, I lost me and couldn't see how bad you played me.Got used to the abuse, nonphysical but the verbal was much powerful than a blow to my head. Blinded by love and a baby, so I thought you would stay with me... 

The sex I gave you was nothing  more nothing less, a quick nut off your chest... Or should I say brain, many nights I blew up your phone searching & pleading for you to come home to us, only drove me insane. Looked in the mirror, I couldn't recognize the person staring back at me, but you was the blame, hell deep down inside I blamed ME...

Packed up my shit, grabbed my baby and jetted out the door. Drove for miles came to this bridge I can't take it anymore. On the ledge I cried silent tears to God, begging him for a sign...then out of no where I heard my baby screaming, so I hurried  to be by his side. 

My dark days turned into beautiful sunny days with hugs & kisses from my love who called me "Mommy" 
Thank you heartache for pushing me to the ledge, teaching me there's more to life than just you...
