Before the words were said

Before the feeling faded

Before the first touch

The first dance

The first kiss

The first born

My hand was on the door

I let the devil win the game

Thinking it was all in my head

but the battle had been fought and lost in a single breath

The words escaped my lips before I could pull them back in

I was already gone

Perhaps I was the coward

the selfish one

Giving myself the out

or was I brave?

Admitting it was over

accepting that nothing else could be done

I rang the bell

it can’t be un-rung

Some words inspire

Some words build empires

Some lie

Some tell truths

but those words

the ones that escaped my lips

My words

destroyed a family.

Hmm! Let's see.I live in Texas born to two human parents (According to my birth certificate) and have three siblings that are nothing like me. I'm an artist and writer. I've lived a lot and learned a lot in my short life and although I lean more towards the pessimistic there is always room to change my sometimes too small tainted heart ;p
