The poem is below.



'' I was in so much denial,'' when it comes to us,
when things are said of of anger or lust;
those things was never Love that we had between us
you would always say, love is painful in many ways
Life we lived was always in a haze,
but I was always in a denial.

''But a part of me always knew this old feeling
was nothing new ,it was like the Flu 
when it comes to me and you.''
you swooped you're negative ways in my life
like a nasty storm that never gone away,
I seen the signs, it was all there 
but for some reason I didn't care.

Until thing was becoming of fear,
when life didn't seem fare;
In recent years , things became darker 
love was never a place that came between us
even though you would call it love 
I just called it a waits of time
while you played your evil games on my mine,

''All of this  provoking me to become evil
in a dark state of mind,'' 
it all felt like I was lost in another time,
when I would say things that was right
he would say it was all a big lie,
madness and anxiety started taken over me
my life became say gray hold so much pain.
I couldn't see away out of this darkness.

I know I should had left this person alone
I should had never let him in my life,
what he calls love , I call evil.
