You tried to leave me 
Broken and confused
Built me up 
Then tore me down and
Said without you I would lose
Like a fool I listened to you

Depended on you for everything
Felt that without you I was nothing
You caused me to accept
Mistreatment and lies
Yelled at me and told me I was ugly
And no one would ever want me
You unleashed this very hell in me

Not once you said you loved me
Not once you said you cared
I don't think you liked me 
Controlled me is what you did

Never thought that I could pull away
But I did
Grew strong and left you
Spread my wings and flew away

I was a caterpillar
Trapped and alone
Grew into a butterfly
And now I'm gone...
