The shadows at the town that used to be the place I called home.
Where I felt safe and surrounded by all the right people until I wasn’t and the shadows became my friend.
As those close to me betrayed me and left me in the dark with nothing to go back to.
So alone and so cold as the day turns into night and no matter how much I layer up I’m still cold.
It’s like the warmth inside me died out that day, and you took my home and gave my heart back to me.
So Broken I accept what has been served to me, but I know I deserve more and better.
But that too will take time to conquer.
