Killing Me Slowly

May 24, 2011
A friend once told me

So straightforward and boldly

That love would end up killing me slowly

Destroy me wholly,

I couldn't believe it

Didn't understand

And he couldn't show me

And I thought he was over exaggerating

Faking and berating it

Irate because it didn't work for him

And when it first struck

I thought it was a lie

How could this thing that made me

Feel so alive

Threaten me?

My identity?

And cause people to commit acts of felonies?

I didn't believe

And when I met you, it seemed

So unreal

The perfect little thing

A nice combination

Of beauty and brains

And as time progressed forward

Our relationship started heading door-ward

And out of sync

It became crazy

Because you grew lazy

And what we had was just a memory so hazy

And it struck me

How could it be

He was right

I didn't listen to my homie

When he told me

That love would end up killing me slowly
