I Pray

I pray to God I never feel this way again,
I keep reminding myself to breathe
In, out, in, out

My heart wants to escape my chest. 
My chest wants to trap my heart
My head's spinning
My minds lost
in, out, in, out

Save yourself.
You knew better. 
You should have run, 
you should have escaped
But you stayed. 
You trusted. 
And now you can't breathe
In, out, in, out

I pray to God I never feel this way again
I pray to God. 
I pray to God, next time I chill, I wait a lil, I'm hesitant. 
I pray to God, I don't trust, I don't believe, I don't love. 

As I write, I breathe. 
In, out, in out. 

A million I told you so's escape my mind, 
Seep into my heart,
Mend the cracks,
Find the pieces. 
I Rebuild. 

I rebuild a tougher, 
selfish, 
Spoilt,
broken heart. 

As I build, I breathe, as I breathe, it beats. 
Broken, but beating. 
I pray to God I never feel this way again.
