I Have Stopped

I have stopped looking for perfection in the soul of another

Stopped breathing the same air you call sacred

I have stopped this walk of shame

I have stopped looking for fulfillment in the world

Stopped laughing at the things that were yours

To myself, I dare not say a lie

The wounds are deep now

Too fresh

I have stopped this search for completion

Stopped talking to the ghosts at night

I have stopped wandering down a path of ill consequence

I have stopped dreaming

Stopped thinking about the passion for life

Now all that is left is an empty shell

A place of regret

Where silence lives

I have stopped my life for you

Now I will start it for myself
