Easier to Leave

You did not know How hard it could be To let go of a poison Stronger than me You held on to hope One day she will be well Not knowing your contribution As I drifted into hell Knowing not spiteful But nonetheless My illness fed I began to regress Lithium did not cure My unworthiness No chemical fix For purposelessness Feelings from my past Of never quite enough Despite your encouragement I fled in a huff In my addiction I always lied Because you saw me A shame I could not hide
