Drip, Drip, Drop

Tags: hurt, choices, love,

This is and isn't what you think it's about

Drip, drip, drop, I hear it hit the floor and I cry

All love that was, existed now and before is gone

Drip, drip, drop, faster it flows, I just let it go

The pain caused, unrelenting it continues on

Drip, drip, drop, pooling, puddling, a circle it forms

No, I'm sorry, offered this time or shame felt instead

Drip, drip, drop, watching it run out, soon to be gone

Can anyone fathom, the hurt, the break in my heart

Drip, drip, drop, do I stop it now? I hear no in my head

Hurt, pain, words uttered, it's now clear for some their meaning unknown

Drip, drip, drop, it spills, it splashes, it looks so pretty and red

Perhaps one day the words will occur and I will hear them said

Drip, drip, drop, no I'm sure they won't. I've waited this long

Over and done, purging my soul, my life away from me

Drip, drip, drop, the choice is still mine, maybe there's a way

Is this the end? No, my soul, heart, they must have some worth

Drip, drip, drop, it's slowing now as I rise back up and face what I've done

I'm worth saving, I've had enough, I choose me this time. I've stemmed the flow

Drip, drip, drop, it's slowing and soon it will stop. I've said no, for this time at least

 Hopefully, the last, the love I need and deserve is there, this in my heart, I know

Drip, drip, drop, I turn, look, there you are again, my saviour, my love, my life

Helping me up, you whisper in my ear. Never leave, please stay, I won't ever let you go
