you destroy
you consume like a sick fire,
knocking everything out of the way
just so you feel okay


you weren’t there
when i needed you most --
you were busy breaking someone’s heart
and yet you managed to break mine
at the same time


lies, whispers, and rumors
you destroyed my fragile trust
and then you left me in the waking dust


you take and take and take
and you never ever give
so tell me, is this really the way to live?
