broken true




smiling in the sunshine

too trusting and too kind


a young girls heart, a childs mind

no reasons yet to question why


i loved you and looked up to you

you'd never do me wrong


so young, how was i to know

that some things shouldn't be


left confused, betrayed

feeling dirty and ashamed


must be my fault somehow

i internalized the blame


but still i loved you

and looked to you each day


i wonder now what you were thinking

as we ran and laughed and played


i always took good care of you

and loved you above the rest


until the day you left me

the dirty secret you could no longer keep


why am i the one left hiding in the shadows

while you are out in the sun


the girl that i once was

how could you take her from me


tears burn behind dry eyes

when i imagine what i could have been
