You came, blazing into my life,
like a comet .
A tornado of destruction ,
you controlled everything.
In that charming way that you do
Every weakness, exploited.
Every sensation seeking behaviour,
I had tried to lock away,
you brought back to me
at such speed it made my head spin
You were out of control
You were fire and ice .
You were lost, lonely, frightened and angry.
Your mother left you
a sensation seeker herself.
Your father taught you it was weak to cry,
be a man, he said
You drank yourself into oblivion
with me, a faithful puppy at your side .
You dragged me into hell with you ,
all morals, forgotten
Those nights we spent
forgetting the world ,
only to wake up feeling wretched and lost ,
lonely in your company
I am sorry I deserted you.
I just couldn’t watch you hurt yourself anymore.
I needed to recover from you .
I hope you are recovering too.
