Originally published in Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle
I Own Me
All this time it’s been my heart
inside breaking mine.
All these years it’s been myself
as enemy I find.
All this sadness, all this rage
that tears myself apart,
I did this and I did that!
I broke my own heart.
All this love that’s come undone,
all this hate I made,
every agony I felt in
every heart I break,
Every misery I felt,
every heart I lost,
all this time I couldn’t see that
myself was the cost.
