I broke my rules for you…

On an adventure that took us from cliff tops to forests, we ran free and hid amongst the shadows, sick with being found out, wasting away like a panicked songbird wanting to be set free.

I broke all the rules for you.

We lost a key in the forest, we swam in the dark water. All the danger was there and you made it safe. We flew away to a house that crumbled by the sea,We lived in ruins under the weight of guilt, we pieced together a home.

 I broke all the rules for you.

Given a crown to wear  I let myself believe, this was a fairytale and I could be queen. I dared to dream of adventures that would last a lifetime. To always say your name and be ok.

I broke all the rules for you.

You wore my name and I walked by your side, my every moment was to grow us, to nurture what little we had, I loved you so fiercely that I forgot to love myself,  I broke us somehow when I broke all the rules for you.

I broke all my rules for you and now I’m alone in a dark forest, lost amongst the shadows. 

I walk the cliffs alone, pulled towards the dark waters below. 

The house is an ugly broken shell and I don’t even have the key. 

The adventures won’t happen and the crown is made of broken glass.

 But still I break all the rules for you.
