Your Stepping Stone


Why did you come back?
You have the world at you feet,
So why do you want to bring mine to its knees?
When you left I had freedom,
I could breathe once again,
And I did not have your oppressive love on my shoulders.
Without you I could just be me,
No hoops to jump through,
No bourdons to carry,
No walking on broken glass.
I know you used me,
And that I was just your stepping stone,
And I really didn’t care,
Then.
I can’t do it again
I will not surrender my life to you this time,
No matter how wonderful your touch feels,
Or how my heart breaks looking into your eyes.
I know you haven’t come back because you love me,
I am just the comfort for which you crave when you become scared.
So please leave me,
I know this may not be the world stage that you walk upon
But it is my oyster
And it’s all I need.
