You’re like a disease
Something that just can’t be pleased
Running over the water
A sinkhole swallows me up in one gulp
Just like you, always eating me alive

I love to love you, but I hate to hate you even more
Your words make people weep, but me laugh

You think you’re ahead of the gang
But what about this time
When I threw you for a loop
Made you question your choices of destruction

Your clumsy mouth has tangled you in a web of dismay
No one is going to help
Not even me

This isn’t your time to shine
Your muddy face has polluted my mind
For the last time

It’s you who is broken and bruised
Only a few are capable of pulling through

definitely can relate... in fact, i've written similar things... this kind of makes me think of woman empowerment
