This is an older poem I wrote about a breakup, which was originally shorter, but I recently edited it due to a strike of inspiration (I have such bad luck with love.) and made it what it is now

You messed up my head and my mind 

You messed up my head and my heart 


Your words stuck in my head 

Your touch still felt in my soul 

Your face engraved in my mind 

And your eyes filled with dangerous memories they will forever hold 


I don’t know what it was, you were some kind of drug 

You put me through the worst, but I took the pleasure along with the pain

I was submitted under your power 

I was restricted by your intoxicating hold 


I thought I loved you and I guess I really did at one point 

But it wasn’t until you hurt me the first time that I had begun to fear you

My dreams filled with worry and doubt

I couldn’t fucking sleep at night 

I didn’t think there’d ever be a way out


Your words, I started to drown em out and listen to myself 

If I stayed a second longer I would have completely lost myself in you

I’m sure that’s what you wanted the day you kissed me 

The day I sucked the poison from your lips

I had to set myself free

This time I wasn’t doing it for you, but for me 


 I had to love myself and to do that I had to stop loving you
