When does the hate and painful words fade?
Remember and realize that we still do hold a love for eachother?
We've both made mistakes and have confusion to seperate,
but this mud slinging anger of pain needs to abate.
Enough of these hateful false accusations,
suspicion questioning each others love and affections.
It's not fair nor does it suit two people who've looked
for a higher level to reject hate and rebuke.
Enough of this hate that just adds fuel to this worthless fire.
I'm tired of the destruction we've both inspired.
I just want peace and to be believed,
that I've never lied about my feelings for thee.
In the end though it's your choice to believe what you will.
If it helps you forget me and improve your life
than kill my character at your will.
I'll not hold you back because it's your life to choose,
nor will I hold you back from what you believe
will help you to improve.
I've had enough of the hate and the anger.
All I'm left with is a burning ball of sadness
and regret for all the debt that's been left.
I won't sling the hate or vicious words to retaliate,
because no matter the pain I still love you
in every possible known way.
I don't claim to be better or higher than any one person.
I'm just tired of all the useless senseless hurting.
I hold you in the highest regard you're my soul mate,
my angel, my northern star, that guides me
in your bright shining light.
What you choose though is up to you.
I believe you're better than endless hurting
you're truly a jewel a priceless treasure.
