Good Bye Lover

If ever I knew then just what I do now
Never could you be allowed to come to me
And cause me pain, loss, and misery.
I would not have fallen a victim of your love
Or known the rushing feeling in my veins.
You always kept me singing and dancing
To have your love I kissed and waited,
Feeling off of what once was apart  of me
You kept me missing and wasting endlessly
Just so I would never ever go and leave.
Giving in was so damn fast and easy.
More and more losing my strength everyday
Swerving off my life, thinking I was cool
Fooling me into believing you ever cared.
Risking everything and losing it all
You drove me insane, crazy for you.
Always was I craving the way you made me feel,
Until one day I caught myself slip,
Wanting my life to go on, needing to live.
I realized I'd better get off the rig.
I threw you out my car window
Without stopping I drove away.
Seeing who you really were,  the pain you brought
Caused me to vomit, finally I saw
Your evil ways and my mind is now clear.

Hi Linda, unfortunately, sometimes it takes a while before we realize that a relationship is toxic; but when we finally do, we know it's time to leave and never look back! I love this insightful, powerful piece! Well done and a 7! Hugs. Pandita
