Overwhelmed, feeling exhausted.
Never ending tasks that never get started.
It’s like one step forward – five steps back
Only focus then was finding which vein to track.
With the flash of blood and the push of the plunger
You filled me, like I was starving from hunger.
Steady with the pull, you made me euphoric.
Who would have known how many blessings you’d make me forfeit.
I won’t lie, you helped me get through a great deal of pain;
But keeping you around now, just won’t be the same.
I put you before my relationship, my family, my freedom, and my daughter.
I had a full academic scholarship, I should’ve been smarter.
By God’s grace I have a chance to redeem my life.
I’m going to get my shit together peacefully, without any of your bullshit or strife.
I’m looking forward to freedom in the rest of my days
But don’t get it twisted – I’ll always think of you, but in my past you will stay.
I forgive you for blinding my judgement, making me believe you were a treat
This go around, the only ups and downs I want to face is in between the sheets.
