Hurry, Hurry. Rush, Rush.
You were always rushing me
You were always rushing us
I thought I might miss something–
An important clue
If I hurried into the thing you were wanting me to do.
You claimed it was because you couldn't contain a bubbling love
But you hid the smoke of a dragon behind eyes of a dove.
I would have married you yesterday,
I heard you say
You were waiting on me,
was always the story
While in dark corners you authored this heartbreak, grim and gory.
Time would reveal all the hurrying and rushing was a purposeful ploy; part of love bombing as though I was a toy
Covering up the explosive truth, I fell in love with the counterfeit you.
No longer myself
Sucked in the vortex
of your twisted world
Looked in the mirror; I am that girl
Splintered memories now a prison cell.
God, break me free
From the one who put
these shackles on me.
