You Swore, I Fell (Takayla)

You swore to protect me, then you let me fall.
You opened your arms wider than the wings of an angel, you held me close and said “baby everything will be okay.”
You kissed my lips and wiped away the tears that fell with hands softer than velvet.
Your touch was your weapon and your words were your shield, weakening me and blinding me from the person you really are.
Lies fell from your lips like honey falls from it’s bottle, smooth and flawless.
Your only downfall was my insecurities taking over my mind.
