It Wasn’t You Unsalvaged

Weren’t you further along

Than you thought you could be

Opening your heart a little wider

Believing finally that someone could love you

It wasn’t you who lost love

It wasn’t you who gave it away

It wasn’t you who refused to accept it

It wasn’t you who warped the road

Twisted the path

Tangled the way

Each heartbreak unfolded

Straightening what was crooked

Unbending the skewed beliefs of what love looks like

White out

A blank page

Hope paints over what had been darkened

Blackened

Burned

Turn over a new leaf

A fresh sheaf

Plenty of room for a happy ending

Plenty of space for a joy long coming

Plenty of love for the broken to find healing

It wasn’t you unsalvaged
