The first time I ever felt you, I was hooked then and there. Even knowing you were a killer didn't matter, I really didn't care.
I would float away in your sweet embrace, and let the the world around me pass me by. Ignoring all of my loved ones cries to leave you, always afraid one day I would die.
I felt invincible when I had you, I swear sometimes I felt I could fly. In reality your nothing but poison, and my life turned into hiding and lies.
You took away my money, family, and everything I ever held dear. All I had left was you, anger, shame, and never ending fear.
It took all I had to see the truth, and finally break your toxic hold. Now I'm no longer yours to control, and my life you can no longer mold.
Go ahead and whisper your sweet lies, but you will never get me back. I see you for what you are now, respect and love for myself I no long lack.
I'm stepping out of your shadow, to live my life back out in the sun. You will never have any part of me again, this is over and I'm finally done.
